REMINGTON, Joseph Price, pharmacist, born in Philadelphia, , Pennsylvania, 26 March, 1847. He was educated in private schools and academies in Philadelphia, and graduated at the Philadelphia college of pharmacy in 1866. In 1874 he succeeded to the professorship of the theory and practice of pharmacy in the Philadelphia college, which chair he has since held, and in 1877 he became director of the pharmaceutical laboratory. Professor Remington has invented various appliances that have had an extended use, among which are a still, a pill-compressor, and an apparatus for percolation. He was first vice-president of the committee of revision in 1880 of the "United States Pharmacopceia," and had the preparation of several classes of, compounds for that book under his immediate supervision. The honorary degree of master in pharmacy was conferred on him by the Philadelphia college, and in 1880 he was elected the first president of the council of the American pharmaceutical association, which office he held for six years. Besides being a fellow of the Chemical, Linnaean, and Pharmaceutical societies of London, he is active in the national associations in the United States, and is an honorary member of many of the state pharmaceutical associations. He has been a voluminous writer on all subjects pertaining to the scientific advancement of pharmacy, as well as a fluent, a forcible, and interesting speaker. Professor Remington is pharmaceutical editor of the " United States Dispensatory" (Philadelphia, 1883), and is the author of "The Practice of Pharmacy" (1886), two standard authorities.
