CHANEY, Lucian West, Jr., naturalist, born in Heuvelton, N. g., 26 June, 1857. He was graduated at Carleton College in 1878, after which he taught in public schools at Mankato and Faribault, Minn., until 1880. During the years 1880-'2 he was superintendent of the City schools in Glencoe, Minn., and in 1882 became professor of biology and geology in Carleton College. The biological department of this institution, under his management, has been thoroughly equipped with modern apparatus, and brought to a state of perfection unequalled in the state of Minnesota, and probably unsurpassed in the west. He has adapted and improved many laboratory appliances, such as section-cutters, injection apparatus, etc., in common use, and has contributed papers on biological subjects to the "Bulletin of the Minnesota Academy of Sciences," the "Sidereal Messenger," and other publications. He is also author of "Guides for the Laboratory" (Northfield, 1886).
