A 1927 article in J.Chem. Ed. said that a "strong healthy body is desirable in the prospective chemist" and then discusses exposure to laboratory fumes and finishes with "chemistry is not a field for the 'weakling'".

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Historical chemical safety quote?
I remember that a notable of chemical history being told by his mentor something along the line of "he who would understand chemistry must be willing to sacrifice his health to it". Anybody know more specifically what I'm talking about? Google doesn't...
Thanks for any help with this.
