William Cruickshank (chemist)
(? - 1810 or 1811), professor of chemistry at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich.
Additional recommended knowledge
Some authors credit Cruikshank with first suspecting an unknown substance in a Scottish mineral, strontianate, found near Strontian, in Argyleshire. Other authors name Adair Crawford for the discovery of this new earth due to the mineral's property of imparting a redding color to a flame. It was later isolated by Humphry Davy and is now known as strontium.
