GOULD, Benjamin Apthorp, bom at Boston, Massachusetts, Sept. 27, 1824. He graduated at Harvard College in 1844, and after- wards studied at Gdttingen, where he took his degree in 1848, and was for some time an assistajit in the observatory at Altona. After visit- ing the principal observatories in Europe, he returned to America, 1851, and was employed in the Coast Survey, having in special charge the longitude determina- tions, the methods of which he greatly improved. In 1856 he was appointed director of the Dudley Observatory, at Albany, New York, retaining the post until the begin- ning of 1859. In 1866 he estab- lished an observatory at Valentia in Ireland, and made the first deter- mination of transatlantic longitude by telegraph cable. In 1868 he was appointed by the Government of the Argentine Republic, South America, U> organise and direct the National Observatory at Cordova, where he stiU remains. Since that time he has completed a set of maps of the stars visible to the naked eye from the observatory, and has also undertaken a series of zone observations on the southern stars. Up to April, 1874, more than 83,000 stars had been observed. In 1849 he founded at Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Astronomical Journal, which he edited until its suspension in 1861, the expenses being defrayed by himself and a few mends. His principal works are : " Report on the Discovery of the Planet Neptune " (Smithsonian Institution Reports, 1850) ; " In- vestigation of the Orbit of the Comet V." (1847) ; " Discussions of Observations made by the U. S. Astronomical Expedition to Chili, to determine the Solar Parallax" (1856); "On the Transatlantic Longitude," 1869; "Military and Anthropological Statistics of Ame-
