MACBRIDE, James, botanist, born in Williamsburg county, South Carolina, in 1784; died in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1817. He was graduated at Yale in 1805, and then studied medicine. Settling in Pineville, South Carolina, he practised his profession for many years, but later removed to Charleston, where he died of yellow fever. Dr. Macbride was an ardent devotee of botany, and contributed papers on that science to the "Transactions of the Linnaean Society" and elsewhere. His name was given by Dr. Stephen Elliott to the Macbridea pulcra, a genus found in St. John's, Berkeley, South Carolina, of which but two species are known to exist. This same authority dedicated the second volume of his "Sketch of the Botany of South Carolina and Georgia" (Charleston, 1824) to Dr. Macbride.
