Joseph H. Campbell

Joseph H. Campbell, Ph. D., in the early 60s an attorney at this place, but for the past 20 years a leading chemist of New York city, died at his home in Mt. Vernon, near the metropolis, Saturday night, aged about 75 years. His wife survives him, with a daughter and two sons.

Mr. Campbell was a grandson of Charles Campbell to whom much of the land now constituting the city of Johnstown was warranted by the commonwealth over 100 years ago. The first Charles Campbell's son, Charles, lived at Campbell's Mills near Blairsville and there Joseph Campbell was brought up. He did not practice law for any great length of time after leaving Ebensburg and gave his attention to chemistry and in this line he became quite well known. Mr. Campbell made the discovery of a method of manufacturing from skimmed milk, a food product of wonderful nutritive power and by the manufacture of this in Jersey City he had acquired a large fortune.
