During his years at the Smithsonian, Foreman also served as Professor of Chemistry in the National Medical College. In 1852, he accepted the position of chief examiner in the Patent Office, a position he retained until 1860. Foreman returned to the Smithsonian in 1874 as a collaborator in Ethnology in the United States National Museum.
