He was the pastor at the South Bushwick Reformed Church in Brooklyn, New York, starting soon after his ordination in 1869, and continuing until his death in 1900. Although this was his main focus, he also managed to make substantial contributions to science during those same years.
He was an early member in the Brooklyn Entomological Society, and he was editor of its publication Entomologia Americana from 1887 to 1889.
In 1888 he took on the new position of entomologist at the Rutgers' New Jersey Agricultural Experiment station, founding the department of entomology there and teaching entomology courses at the university. He resigned after only a year when it became apparent that it took too much time away from his primary responsibility as pastor, but left a good foundation for his successor, John Bernhardt Smith, to build upon.
Most of his entomological collection was given to Rutgers well before his death, with the core specimens that he kept for reference going to the Brooklyn Museum after his death. His plant specimens are now in the herbarium at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
