"November 16, 1938 Swiss chemists Arthur Stoll and Albert Hoffman become the first scientists to synthesize LSD, the highly hallucinogenic drug that went on to become a part of the 1960s recreational drug culture. The name LSD comes from the German term “Lysergsäure-diethylamid”, or ‘Lysergic acid diethylamide’ in English, while the substance itself is derived from a fungus that grows on rye. Five years after the initial synthesis, Hofman self-administered a dose to experience what he soon found were considerable psychotropic effects."
