Edward Alexander Bouchet (15 September 1852 – 28 October 1918) was an African American physicist who is most notable for having been the first African American to earn a Ph.D. from an American university. He graduated from Yale University in 1874 (as the first black person to graduate from Yale) and completed his dissertation in Yale's Ph.D. program in 1876. Bouchet spent the rest of his life taking a variety of teaching positions around the country, though he had difficulty finding work due to racial discrimination.
