Moses Quinby

Moses Quinby (1810—1875) was one of the first commercial beekeepers in the United States, a native of St. Johnsville, New York.

Quinby established his business in his early 20s and expanded it to own about 1,200 hives in the Mohawk Valley, New York.

Among his innovations in beekeeping, he is credited with the invention of the modern bee smoker with bellows. He is also the author of the book "Mysteries of Bee-Keeping Explained" (1853).
