Dec. 17, 1819; d. May 13, 1882, at Cambridge. Prof. Josiah Dwight WHITNEY was born in Northampton, Mass. Nov. 20, 1819. He was graduated at Yale in 1839, and then spent six months in the chemical labora- tory of Dr. Robert ROMA in Philadelphia. In 1846 he joined the survey of New Hamp- shire as assistant geologist under Chas. T. JACKSON, and remained connected with that work until May, 1842, when he went abroad. For five years he traveled on the continent of Europe, and pursued chemical, geological and mineralogical studies. On his return to this country in 1847, he engaged in the geological exploration of the Lake Superior region and, with John W. FOSTER, was in the same year appointed by the U. S. government to assist Chas. T. JACKSON in making a geological survey of that district. Two years later the completion of the survey was entrusted to Foster and Whitney, who published "Synopsis of the Explorations of the Geological Corps in the Lake Superior Land District in the Northern Peninsula." (Washington, 1849), and "Report on the Geology and Topography of a portion of the Lake Superior Land District of the State of Michigan;" (part. i., copper lands, 1850; part. ii., the iron region, 1851]. On the completion of this work, he traveled for two years through the states east of the Mississippi river for the purpose of collecting information with regard to the mining and mineral interests in this country. His results were issued as "The Metallic Wealth of the United States, Described and Compared with that of Other Countries" (Philadelphia, 1854). In 1855 he was appointed state chemist and professor in the Iowa state university, and was associated with James HALL in the geological survey of that state, issuing "Reports on the Geological Survey of Iowa" (2 vols., Albany, 1858-59]. During 1858-60, Prof. WHITNEY was engaged in a geological survey of the lead region of the upper Missouri, in connection with the official surveys of Wisconsin and Illinois, publishing, with James HALL, a "Report on the Geological Survey of the State of Wisconsin" (Albany, 1862). He was appointed
