LINTNER, Joseph Albert, entomologist, born in Schoharie, New York, 8 February, 1822. He studied in the Jefferson and Schoharie academies until 1837, and then engaged in business pursuits in New York city for several years, during which time his studies were actively continued through facilities that were afforded him by his official connection with the mercantile library association. In 1848 he returned to Schoharie, and there followed a mercantile life. About 1853 he became interested in the study and collection of insects, to which his leisure thence forward was devoted. He removed to Utica in 1860, and then engaged in the manufacture of woollen goods until 1867, when he became the zoological assistant in the New York state museum of natural history in Albany. This office he held for the ensuing twelve years, during" which time his attention was largely devoted to entomological research, and several papers in this department of science were prepared by him, and published in the annual reports of the museum and elsewhere. In 1881 he became state entomologist, and in 1883 was placed on the scientific staff of the museum. He received the honorary degree of Ph. D. from the regents of the University of the state of New York in 1884, and, in addition to membership in about twenty scientific associations in the United States and Europe, has held the presidency of the department of natural science in the Albany institute since 1879. His scientific papers down to July, 1887, number 413. Officially he has published "Report on the Injurious and other Insects of the State of New York" (2 vols., 1883-'5); also "Report of the State Entomologist" (1883 el seq.).
