JOSEPH ALBERT LINTNER

In the sudden death of this prominent entomologist at Rome, Italy,
on May 5, 1898, the scientific world sustained a great loss. Joseph
Albert Lintner, Ph. D., was born in Schoharie, N. Y., Feb. 8, 1822, of
German parentage. He attended Jefferson academy and was graduated
from the Schoharie academy in 1837. For 10 years he was in business
in New York city, and at the same time continued his studies under the
Mercantile library association, also contributing scientific articles to the
New York tribune. Returning to' Schoharie in 1848, he engaged anew
in business till 1860, when he removed to Utica and there manufactured
woolen goods for some years. His scientific studies were continued un-
remittingly. His large collection of insects was begun in 1853 and in
1862 his first article on entomology was published. In 1868 he became
zoological assistant in the state museum, and was put in charge of
the entomologic work in 1874. He was appointed state entomologist by
Governor Cornell in 1880, a position held till his death, and in 1883 was
made by the regents a member of the scientific staff of the state museum.

This long and faithful service in his chosen field made him a valued
and respected leader among economic entomologists. The last 36 years
of his life were devoted almost entirely to entomology, and he wrote
during that time over 900 independent articles, besides his 13 reports
and the four numbers of Entomological contributions. In 1871 he began
to contribute articles on economic entomology to the Cultivator and
country gentleman, a leading agricultural paper now known as the
Country gentleman, and was its entomological editor during the last 25
years. He has also written many notices for a number of other agricultural
and horticultural papers. Although his publications were numerous and
varied, it was their writer's ambition to make his communications of
practical value to all. It was his delight to include something new or
of more than ordinary interest in every notice of an insect. For the past
18 years he was widely known as a most earnest and conscientious state
entomologist. His reports, replete with valuable and practical informa-
tion, are enduring monuments to their author. In simplicity of language,
dignity of expression, conciseness and thoroughness of treatment, they
are models.

The high appreciation won from his colaborers is strikingly shown in
the following extract" from an address delivered in 1894 before the Asso-
ciation of economic entomologists by the president, Dr L. O. Howard,

a Insect life. 1894. 7 : 63

now chief of the division of entomology, of the United States depart-
ment of agriculture:

The movement which resulted in the passage of this law a was started
by the regents of the University of the State of New York at their annual
meeting in 1877, and the person appointed to fill the office was Dr ]. A.
Lintner, a well-known worker in entomology, who, up to that time, had
been connected with the state museum of natural history. Dr
Lintner has held office continuously since 1881. He brought to bear
upon his duties a ripe experience and a mind trained in scientific meth-
ods. He has published nine reports, the last one covering the year 1892,
and only recently distributed. These reports are in many respects
models. The great care and thoroughness of the author have hardly
been equalled by any other writer upon economic entomology. The
form of the reports is most admirable, and the account of each insect
forms almost invariably a complete compendium of our knowledge con-
cerning it down to the date of publication. His accounts are also ar-
ranged in the most convenient form for reference, a full bibliography
precedes the consideration ol each species, and the frequent subheadings
enable the most practical use of the report. The reports are replete with
sound and ingenious practical suggestions, and are written in a straight-
forward, simple style, which possesses great literary merit. They abound
in illustrations, and are made available by most complete indices and
tables of contents. Aside from these reports, Dr Lintner has published
a great deal in the newspapers, particularly the Country gentleman, on
the subject of economic entomology, and another valuable feature of his
reports is the comprehensive list which he publishes each year of his unof-
ficial writings.

Without the magnificent opportunities our universities are offering
today, this life shows in the highest degree the results of patient effort
supplemented by untiring perseverance. Although prohibited by cir-
cumstances from devoting his whole time to scientific pursuits till late in
life, his great love for nature enabled him to attain one of the highest
positions in his chosen work. In 1884 the honorary degree of doctor of
philosophy was conferred on him by the regents of the University of the
State of New York. He was president of the Entomological club of the
American association for the advancement of science and the Associa-
tion of economic entomologists, two years each, and was president of the
department of natural science of the Albany institute from 1879 till his death.
He was elected to membership not only in learned societies in this coun-
try, but many of those abroad were proud to enroll his name on their
books, as may be seen by the appended list of memberships held at the
time of his decease. A short time before his death he was granted a six
months' leave of absence by the regents in recognition of his long and
faithful services.

a Lawg of 1881,'ch. 377. The original appointment was made by Governor Cornell in 1880,
under authority of ch. 549 of the.laws of that year.

BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE ENTOMOLOGIC PUBLICATIONS



Joseph Albert Lintner, Ph. D.

The highly commendable practice of the late Dr J. A. Lintner in
giving lists of his papers together with place, date of publication and
summary of contents, has reduced to a minimum the labor of preparing
this bibliography of his writings. In bringing these titles together, it
has been my aim to render the greatest value with the least repetition.
The extended summaries included in the original lists have been
abridged, only the names of the more important species being retained.
