A very generous gift from Jeff Seeman.Very few scientists of the 20th century have had as much of both a scientific as well as a cultural impact on the world as Carl Djerassi. It is a measure of how many things Djerassi excelled at that even his amazing purely scientific career seems like a distant horizon. While most scientists are quite happy to become world-renowned in their
