ANTHONY, John Gould (1804-77). An American conchologist. He was born at Providence, R. I., and for many years was in commerce, but his studies in mitural history resulted in his being invited by Professor Louis Agassiz, in 1863, to the directorship of the conchological department of the Museum of Comparative Zoölogy at Harvard University. In 1865 he accompanied Professor Agassiz on the Thayer expedition to Brazil. He was an acknowledged authority in his field of research, and published A New Trilobite: Ceratocephala Ceralepta (1838), Descriptions of Three New Species of Shells (1839), Descriptions of New Species of American Fluviate Gasteropods (1861), Descriptions of New American Fresh-Water Shells (1866), and other works.
