He spent much of his life in Michigan and graduated from the State Agricultural College, present-day Michigan State University, in 1862. In 1867 he established the Collection of Insects at the College. As an instructor at Michigan Agricultural College, he was extensively involved in beekeeping, where he lectured on apiculture and published a pamphlet called The Manual of the Apiary in 1876, which was eventually expanded into a textbook and went through at least seventeen editions.

He also spent many years in California as he taught at Pomona College from 1894 to 1911 and after this headed California's Commission of Horticulture.

He died in his childhood home in 1916.
