Submission + - One-of-a-kind chemistry autograph collection goes digital (acs.org)

carmendrahl writes: "A science historian has collaborated with a publisher to digitize a one-of-a kind collection of chemists' signatures. In the shadow of World War II, a Japanese chemist named Tetsuo Nozoe traveled outside his land for the first time, and collected autographs from the people he met on the way. This turned into a forty year hobby, and a 1200-page collection. The digital collection sucks chemists in for hours- it's full of cartoons, jokes, haikus, and scribbles the signers admit to having scrawled "in a drunken state". Nobel Prizewinners and ordinary chemists signed side-by-side. The Nozoe notebook collection will be open access for at least three years, with a big goal being to identify all the "mystery" signatures in the collection with help from readers."
