UHLER, Philip Reese (you'-ler), naturalist, b. in Baltimore, Md., 3 June, 1835. He studied natural science at Harvard under Louis Agassiz in 1863, and was assistant in charge of entomology at that institution and librarian of the Museum of comparative zoölogy. Subsequently he returned to Baltimore, and in 1876 he became an associate in natural sciences at Johns Hopkins university. He is also librarian of the Peabody institute in that city.

His papers on geology, entomology, and other natural sciences have been published in the journals of most of the learned societies of the United States and Canada, in the annual reports to the trustees of Harvard, and as special reports in the volumes of the U. S. geological survey. He translated and edited, with a glossary, Dr. Hermann A. Hagen's “Synopsis of Neuroptera of North America,” issued by the Smithsonian institution (Washington, 1861).
