ABSTRACT
The article examines the distribution of chemists both in industry and in other employment sectors in Scotland during the first half of the twentieth century. The author discusses the Census of Population in Scotland for 1911, 1921 and 1931. Then, he tackles the official chemical appointments and the membership lists of the principal chemical organizations in the country for the periods 1910-1912 and 1936-1939. He also reports the result of two surveys of the employment of chemists in Scotland on the eve of the two World Wars.
