HARASZTHY, Agostin, viticulturist, born in Hungary in 1812; died near Leon, Nicaragua, 10 August, 1869. He emigrated to the United States in early manhood, lived for several years in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Texas, and in 1850 settled in California as superintendent of the San Francisco mint. He engaged largely in grape-culture in 1858, and was superintendent of the Buena Vista viricultural society's vineyard in Sonoma county. In 1864 he went abroad to investigate the culture of the grape and procure continental varieties. In 1867 he visited Nicaragua and obtained from that government the right to manufacture there distilled liquors for twenty years. While he was exploring the swamps near Leon, he fell into a stream, and was devoured by alligators. He published a "Treatise on Grape-Culture in Europe and California" (San Francisco, 1865).
