FROST, Charles Christopher, botanist, born in Brattleboro, Vermont, in 1806: died in 1880. He received his early instruction at a common school of his native village, excelled in mathematics, and studied it several years after he had left school and begun to work at his trade as a shoemaker, making himself familiar with algebra, geometry, the calculus, and kindred branches. Later he devoted his leisure hours to astronomy, geology, mineralogy, meteorology, and botany, especially the last-named study, to which he gave the last half of his life. He contributed to periodicals and was a member of scientific societies in the United States and Europe. During all these years he continued his business in his native town. He was joint author with Edward Tuckerman of a "Catalogue of Plants growing without Cultivation within Thirty Miles of Amherst College" (Amherst, 1875).
