BARRY, Patrick, horticulturist, born near Belfast, Ireland, in May 1816. He was employed as a teacher in one of the national schools in Ireland, and on his arrival in America in 1836 became a clerk for Prince & county, nurserymen, of Flushing, L.I. In 1840 he entered into the nursery business in partnership with George Ellwanger, at Rochester, New York The firm took the lead in the importation of the dwarf varieties of pears, grafted on quince roots, from France, and extended their business until their nurseries were the largest in the country. Through their enterprise, various wild species of shade-trees have been introduced into cultivation, hardy exotics acclimatized, and improved varieties of fruits and flowering plants developed by culture or introduced from abroad. Mr. Barry edited the "Genesee Farmer" from 1844 to 1852, and from 1852 to 1854 the "Horticulturalist." He has published a "Treatise on the Fruit Garden" (New York, 1851; new ed., 1872), and has written extensively on subjects connected with pomology and flower-gardening. He also prepared the complete and valuable "Catalogue of the American Pomological Society."
