Dr. John Lawrence Leconte


INFORMATION has just been received in this country announcing the death of Dr. LeConte. He was born in New York on May 13, 1825, and was the son of a distinguished officer in the United States army, himself an entomologist. He-adopted the medical profession, and during the secessionist war he entered as medical officer of volunteers. The foregoing necessarily brief, specially biographic account is chiefly derived from information furnished in Dimmock's “Special Bibliography of American Entomologists, No. 1.”
