Richard H. P. Juerst (1879-1963) was born in Germany, studied at the Brewing Academy in Munich, arrived in the U.S. in 1901, and became brewmaster of the Harvard Brewing Company. At some point he devised an instrument to determine the boiling point of a solution. The inscriptions on this example read “Juerst's Ebulliometer for Beverages and Beer containing from 0 – 7% Alcohol by Vol. Manufct. By Eimer & Amend, New York, N.Y.” and “No. 1127.”
