Biographical Note

Carter Litchfield

Carter Litchfield, born on February 18, 1932, earned a B.S. in chemical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY. Litchfield later earned Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Texas A&M after starting his professional career as a chemist for Procter & Gamble (P&G). During the mid- to late 1950s Litchfield worked in the Edible Research Section of the Chemical Division of P&G. His work there centered on shortening products like Crisco and margarine oils. Because of his work at Procter & Gamble, Litchfield developed an interest in the history of fatty materials, which he defined as high-calorie fats found in seeds and animals. Fatty oils include olive, linseed, soybean, cottonseed (all seed oils) as well as lard, tallow, and other animal body fats. Litchfield left P&G in 1960 to take a job as a research scientist at Texas A&M. After a few years at Texas A&M Litchfield decided to work towards his doctorate in organic chemistry.

Litchfield then spent nine years working at Rutgers University. His research activities revolved around soluble oils in marine mammals and aquatic sponges. Litchfield published his work on Amazon River dolphins in a 1970 article in Biomedical Life & Sciences. In 1972, Litchfield published the book Analysis of Triglycerides. While at Rutgers Litchfield founded Olearius Editions, a publication company dedicated to the history of vegetable oil and fat production. In 1979, Litchfield retired from Rutgers to pursue a new career researching and publishing works on the history of fatty oils.

Olearius Editions (named for the artisan in the Roman Empire who pressed oil from olives and sold it to the community) specialized in the publication of histories of the manufacture of vegetable oils and fats. Litchfield's first book, published in 1974 was an English translation of the 1836 Japanese work, Seiyu roku. One of Litchfield's most important Olearius publications was a book he co-authored, The Bethlehem Oil Mill, 1745-1934: German Technology in Early Pennsylvania (1984). The book featured first time translations of German documents detailing the craft and artisanship involved at the oil mill. His interest in oil mills extended well beyond Bethlehem, Pa. Litchfield researched and photographed oil mills all over the United States, Europe, and parts of the Middle East. Olearius Editions publications reflected Litchfield’s global scope with the publication of another translated work, History and Technology of Olive Oil in the Holy Land (1993). The Olearius version was partially translated from Hebrew with the addition of an original chapter not included in the original Hebrew publication. Litchfield also wrote and published through Olearius the definitive History of Oleomargarine Tax Stamps and Licenses in the United States (1988), a philatelic guide for the collecting of oleomargarine stamps. This book is known for its precise detail and dedication to an understudied topic.

As a member of the Society for Industrial Archeology (SIA) Litchfield regularly attended SIA meetings, functions, and conferences. He often presented papers to the SIA and sat on several committees, including the Vogel Prize committee. Litchfield researched the history of fats and fatty materials until his death on May 9, 2007 in Arlington, VA.

Carter Litchfield married his wife, Carol, in 1960. Like her husband, Carol Litchfield received a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Texas A&M and taught at Rutgers University. Carol Litchfield taught for 10 years before taking a position at the DuPont Company as head of Environmental Toxicology at Haskell Laboratory and then as Senior Scientist for its bioremediation subsidiary. She then started her own consulting company and worked for Chester Environmental prior to joining the George Mason University faculty in 1993.

Carter Litchfield died on May 9, 2007.

Julius Lewkowitsch

Julius Lewkowitsch, born in Prussian Silesia on September 4, 1857, was an authority on the chemistry of vegetable and animal fats and oils. Lewkowitsch attended Breslau University, where he studied with Victor von Richter. In 1879 he graduated with a Ph.D.; he also earned a M.A. degree in 1881. After graduation Lewkowitsch spent a year teaching mathematics and natural science in Real Gymnasium in Berlin. Lewkowitsch then took a position as a research assistant to Victor Meyer at the University of Heidelberg. At Heidelberg Lewkowitsch studied fats and fatty oils. His first published work concerned the action of nitric acid on fatty acids. Lewkowitsch soon left the academic world for a position as a research chemist at the tar distillery Aktiengesellschaft Fur Teerindustrie Erkner in Berlin. In 1887, Lewkowitsch immigrated to England and became Chemist and Technical Manager to the Whitehall Soap Works in Leeds. It was there that Lewkowitsch became the first person to prepare chemically pure glycerin from soap makers’ lyes. Lewkowitsch presented his results at the Leeds meeting of the British Pharmaceutical Conference in 1890. Prior to his presentation, glycerin was recovered from the arsenic in soap lye. The key to Lewkowitsch’s method was to avoid the use of arsenic in soap, making glycerin recovery much easier.

In 1895 Lewkowitsch became a consulting chemist and technologist in oils and fats in Manchester. That same year he published the first of six editions (1895, 1898, 1904, 1909, 1913, and 1921) of The Chemical Technology and Analysis of Oils, Fats, and Waxes. Although Lewkowitsch’s initial publication was founded on Rudolf Benedikt’s Analyse der Fette und Wachsarten, his later editions would be original works. Lewkowitsch book editions expanded to three volumes and were printed in French and German.

Lewkowitsch joined the Society of Chemical Industry in 1889. He contributed articles to the Society’s publications and wrote entries for the Encyclopedia Britannica on oils and fats. In 1898, Lewkowitsch moved to London, where he maintained a laboratory on Priory Road, West Hampstead and offices on Queen Victoria Street in the city of London. Lewkowitsch married Katherine Julia Morris, May 5, 1902. The two had one daughter, Phyllis Regina Elsa Lewkowitsch (Elsa) and a son Jason Farradane. In 1905 Julius was elected vice president of the London Section of the Society of Chemical Industry. Lewkowitsch went on to become chairman in 1908 and foreign secretary of the society in 1911, a position he held until his death in 1913. For his work as a chemist, Lewkowitsch was awarded the Lavoisier Medal in 1909. Lewkowitsch, an accomplished linguist, spoke German, French, Italian, and English. Julius Lewkowitsch died September 15, 1913 after an illness.

Ellsworth C. Warner

Ellsworth C. Warner (1884-1942), an Iowa linseed miller, founded the Midland Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1900. Warner was joined in the venture by his in-law Edgar C. Bisbee, a member of a wealthy Chicago linseed-oil-family. In 1890, Warner married Edgar’s sister, Francis Melvina "Mellie" Bisbee. Throughout the first decade of the 20th century the Midland Company continued to expand until 1911 when it was reincorporated as the Midland Linseed Products Company. At the time of incorporation Warner’s company was capitalized at $10 million. Midland Linseed products began to falter in 1921 when the Bisbee family members split with Warner over his acrimonious divorce from Mellie Bisbee. The Bisbees departure destabilized Midlands upper management severely enough to precipitate the company’s sale to the newly formed Archers-Daniels-Midland Company.

As of the divorce settlement, Warner gave over $1 million to Mellie Bisbee. In 1929, still unsatisfied with the previous settlement, Mellie Bisbee sued her ex-husband over a $2,200 inheritance that she claimed was seed money for nearly $5 million worth in oil mill investments. She sought a settlement of over $100,000. Unfortunately, the outcome of the suit is not recorded in the collection.

Ellsworth Warner and his first wife, Mellie had four sons, Ellsworth Bisbee "Bis" (b.1892), Maurice A. (1894-1953), Harold (b.1897), and Wendell E. (b.1902). In 1930, Warner married Roslyn Allen. Warner continued to work in the linseed oil business until his death in 1942.
