LIPPINCOTT, James Starr, agriculturist, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 12 April, 1819; died in Haddonfield, New Jersey, 17 March, 1885. He was educated at Haverford college, and resided for many years in Haddenfield, New Jersey, where he paid much attention to scientific agriculture and meteorology. He patented a "vapor index," for measuring the amount of moisture in the atmosphere, which has been used in the Smithsonian institution and elsewhere, he was the author of six treatises, published in the "Reports of the Agricultural Department" (Washington, 1862-'7), and numerous papers on horticulture in the "Gardener's Monthly"; compiled a "Catalogue of the Books belonging to the Library of the Four Monthly Meetings of Friends of Philadelphia" (Philadelphia, 1853); and edited the American revision of "Chambers's Encyclopaedia" (1870-'1). For many years before his death he had been engaged on a history of "The Lippincotts of England and America," which is now (1887) in press.
