OUTERBRIDGE, Albert Albony, lawyer, born in Bermuda, 20 April, 1841. He studied law with William Rawle, graduated at the law-school of the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1862 was admitted to the Philadelphia bar. Since 1874 he has been the editor-in-chief of the " Weekly Notes of Cases," of which seventeen volumes have been published in Philadelphia. He was appointed reporter to the supreme court of Pennsylvania in 1881, and edited several volumes of reports. This office he resigned, 1 January, 1885, to become the trust officer of the Land title and trust company of Philadelphia, which post he now (1888) holds. 0UVRARD, Leon Francois (oov-rar), West Indian scientist, born in St. Martin in 1767" died in Coppet, near Geneva, Switzerland, in 1826. He was descended from early French settlers, received his education in Paris, and, enlisting in the army in 1791, served in Germany and Italy. He was dangerously wounded in the attack on Arcole bridge, 15 November, 1796, and promoted captain on the spot by Napoleon Bonaparte. Resigning a few months later, he fixed his residence at Copper, near Geneva, and devoted the remainder of his life to science. He became one of the founders of ethnography and ethnology, which were almost entirely ignored up to the beginning of the 19th century. He made extensive journeys through Europe and America, and his works have been used by modern laborers in the same line, including Charles Darwin and Alfred R. Wallace. They include "Prodomes d'ethnographie et d'ethnologic "(Paris, 1811)-"De la distribution geographique des races humaines dans l'Europe centrale" (2 vols., 1814, with atlas) ; "Analyse de la distribution geographique de la race jaune dans ses branches Mongole, Oceanique, et Sud Americaine" (1820) ; "Etudes sur la race rouge, dans ses deux varietes, Indiens du Nord de l'Amerique et Caraibe" (1821) ; "Des differentes especes du genre homo" (1823); and "Histoire naturelle descriptive des varietes de l'homme" (1825).
