REYNOLDS, John Parker, agriculturist, born in Lebanon, Ohio, 1 March, 1820. He was graduated at Miami university in 1838, and in 1850 removed to Winnebago county, Illinois, and engaged in farming and thoroughbred stock-raising. In 1860-'71 he was secretary of the State agricultural society. In 1868 he removed from Springfield to Chicago, and the next year he became first editor of the " National Live-Stock Journal." In 1873 he was called upon to assist in organizing" an association for the promotion of industry, science, and art, and the erection of an exposition building in Chicago. He was elected secretary of the association, which post he now (1888) holds. On 9 October, 1873, in commemoration of the great fire of 1871, the exhibition was formally opened, and every year since has been very successful, largely owing to the efforts of Mr. Reynolds.
