FOREWORD 

t 

' The editor of this Biographical Record of the Lutheran Theological 
Seminary .at Philadelphia writes these final words out of a thankful heart- 
not so much because the task is finished, as because it was so well worth 
the doing. 

The impatience aroused by vexatious difficulties and delays in securing 
information, and the regret felt in writing the unhappy history of a very 
few names, are all forgotten in the overwhelming sense of consecrated 
endeavor and divine blessing represented in the records of. more than one 
thousand men, whom the Philadelphia Seminary helped to prepare for the 
Ministry of the Gospel. 

The Seminary and the Church may well be proud of such a record of 
constructive achievement and spiritual influence affecting hundreds of 
thousands of souls in our congregations and communities. It is a record 
of preaching and teaching and pastoral care; of missionary zeal and self- 
sacrifice in the great cities, on the frontiers and in foreign lands ; of 
editorial labors and authorship; of administrative responsibilities and com- 
mittee tasks ; of watchfulness and prayer and loving service in the spirit 
and Name of Jesus Christ by men who dedicated their lives and their gifts 
to Him and to His Church, and whose ministry has been wonderfully blest. 
Such a record compels not only admiration, but reverence and thanksgiving. 

This volume was projected by the Alumni Association and the editor 
was appointed by it. The Seminary has cordially furthered the work and 
assisted in its publication. 

The editorial plan provides brief biographical sketches of all professors 
and alumni, with trustworthy information objectively and uniformly given. 
Parishes served, with dates, are given as fully as possible, but it has been 
found impracticable to give detailed parochial statistics, such as accessions, 
financial statements, church building programs, etc., and these have been 
omitted from all records. Official positions in Synods and General Bodies 
are indicated, but Conference positions have not been included. An effort 
has been made to record committee work when particularly important or of 
long duration. Positions of honor and trust and influential work in the 
community have been noted so far as possible, and an especial effort has 
been made fully to record all literary work of consequence. 

The attempt to include complete records of the many special and other 
students who spent a year or more in the Seminary, but did not graduate, 
proved impracticable and the plan was abandoned. 

It was only with the greatest difficulty that exact information could be 

5 



FOREWORD 

obtained concerning some of the early graduates, many of whom are 
deceased, others no longer in the ministry, etc. The records of quite a few 
other alumni presented almost as great difficulty, because repeated requests 
tor information were ignored, and questionnaires not returned. But in 
nearly all these cases, correspondence with relatives, classmates and friends, 
and persistent searching of Faculty and Archive material, the Minutes of 
Synods, College and Seminary Catalogs, Synodical, Conference, and con- 
gregational histories, and obituary notices in Church almanacs and weeklies, 
have yielded some facts. With several hundred thousand separate items 
recorded it is too much to hope for entire accuracy, and the editor will be 
grateful for corrections and important additions that should be made in 
future editions. 

The compilation of such a Record would have been impossible without 
the cordial assistance of many persons, and this is gratefully acknowledged. 
But the editor is particularly indebted to President Henry E. Jacobs, whose 
unflagging interest in the work from its beginning to its conclusion led him 
to give to it many hours of valuable time, and supplied exact information 
and innumerable "clues" leading to results otherwise unattainable; and to 
Miss Mary E. Kaighn, Assistant Librarian of the Krauth Memorial Library, 
whose painstaking 1 researches and intelligent handling of the material have 
contributed to the fullness and accuracy of the Record. The Rev. Clarence 
H. Swavely, '22, now of the India Mission Field, also made extensive 
searches and prepared a large part of the manuscript for the printer.

THE OLD SEMINARY ON FRANKLIN STREET 



HISTORICAL SUMMARY 

With the farseeirlg vision that characterized all his activities, the 
Patriarch Henry Melchior Muhlenberg from the very beginning saw that 
the establishment of a Theological Seminary in or near Philadelphia for 
the training of Lutheran ministers was one of the most important objects 
comprehended in his call. Accordingly, in 1749, one year after the 
Ministerium of Pennsylvania was organized, he bought a lot of ground in 
the city and deeded it to Dr. Ziegenhagen in London and Dr. Francke in 
Halle to be held in trust for this purpose. While the project was long 
delayed, the Minutes of the Ministerium, especially in 1769, 1773, 1804, 1805, 
1820, show that it never departed from the mind of the Church, and 
repeated plans were proposed and efforts made toward its beginning. 

To supply the lack of an institution, the Ministerium from time to time 
appointed certain of its abler members to give candidates for the ministry 
the needed preparation. In 1804 the Revs. F. V. Melsheimer, J. H. Helmuth, 
D.D., J. F. Schmidt, D.D., J. G. Lochman, D.D., F. W. Geissenhainer, D.D., 
and C. Streit, were elected theological instructors to whom students should 
resort, and some $500 were contributed as the nucleus of a Seminary Fund. 
Dr. Demme, Dr. Mann and others later gave similar private instruction. 
Many useful ministers and some of the more influential leaders of the 
Church were thus trained in the parsonages of busy pastors. An unsuc- 
cessful attempt was made (1842-44) to unite in the support of the College 
and Seminary at Columbus, Ohio, where Dr. C. F. Schaeffer was for some 
years a theological professor, and to which institution Dr. C. R. Demme 
had also been called. 

About 1850 a beginning was made of a union with the institutions at 
Gettysburg, when the interests* of the Ministerium in Franklin College, at 
Lancaster, Pa., were sold to the Reformed Church, and the proceeds used 
to establish the Franklin Professorship at Pennsylvania (now Gettysburg) 
College. In 1850 Dr. F. A. Muhlenberg became {he first incumbent of 
this professorship. In 1856 the Ministerium added another professorship, 
whose incumbent had the double duty of teaching Theology in German in 
the Seminary and teaching 1 the German Language and Literature in the 
College. This professorship was partially endowed through the indefatigable 
efforts of the Rev. Benjamin Keller by collections made principally from 
congregations of the Ministerium. From 1856 to 1864 it was filled by Dr. 
C. F. Schaeffer, who in the latter year was transferred to Philadelphia. 
When the Ministerium had founded its own Seminary at Philadelphia and 
its College at Allentown, all claims to rights arising from its . former 
relations were ultimately relinquished.

PHILADELPHIA SEMINARY RECORD 

During the convulsion of the Civil War, in 1864, the importance of the 
establishment of a Theological Seminary in the place originally designed 
for it by Muhlenberg became apparent. It was confidently expected that 
with such an institution unreservedly based upon the Lutheran Confessions, 
with a longer course of study than was then usual, and with the wants of 
all parts of the Church in view, all the rapidly expanding needs of the 
Church, both in English and in German, throughout the whole country, 
would be better met than ever before. 

1864 

President C. W. Schaeffer, D. D., in his annual report to the Ministerium 
of Pennsylvania, meeting in Pottstown, Pa., called attention to "the duty 
of making more ample provision for the education of pastors. . . . The 
necessity of definite and liberal action is now upon us. . . ." 

May 25th, the Ministerium resolved, "That in the Name of the Lord we 
now determine to undertake the establishment of a Theological Seminary." 

A Committee consisting of the Revs. C. F. Welden, W. J. Mann, F. C. 
H. Lampe, and Messrs. C. F. Norton and Charles A. Heinitsh presented a 
plan the following day. Consideration was postponed to a special meeting, 
held July 26th in Allentown. The first three items, viz., that the Seminary 
should be unreservedly based on all the Lutheran Confessions, that it should 
be located in Philadelphia, and that instruction should be in English and in 
German, were adopted. 

Another Committee, consisting of the Revs. G. F. Krotel, J. Kohler, 
F. W. Geissenhainer, J. T. Vogelbach, and Messrs. G. Lindauer, James 
Dinkey and Charles A. Heinitsh, reported further plans the following day, 
recommending three regular professors, one to have charge of the English 
Department, one of the German Department, and one to cover both lan- 
guages ; and several assistant professors. This was adopted and Dr. C. F. 
Schaeffer was elected the first regular professor; Dr. W. J. Mann, Professor 
in the German Department; and Dr. C. P. Krauth, Professor in the English 
Department. Drs. C. W. Schaeffer and G. F. Krotel were elected Assistant 
Professors. It was also resolved to invite neighboring Synods to co-operate, 
any Synod endowing a Professorship to have the right to nominate the 
incumbent, with final election by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania. 

A provisional Board of Directors, consisting of eleven ministers and 
nine laymen, was elected, and steps were taken to open the Seminary at 
once and to secure endowment. The following constituted this provisional 
Board of Directors : Ministers: the Revs. W. J. Eyer, F. W. Geissenhainer, 
D.D., C. F. Welden, D.D., G. A. Wenzel, D.D., J. T. Vogelbach, B. M. 
Schmucker, D.D., S. K. Brobst, J. Kohler, D.D., G. F. Miller, J. J. Kuendig, 
F. Herold. Laymen: Dr. F. A. Muhlenberg, Dr. H. H. Muhlenberg,

H. Trexler, C. F. Norton, L. L. Houpt, C. Pretz, Lewis Bremer, Frederick 
Genuth, James Dinkey. 

October 3d the Professors were installed at a service in St. John's 
Church, the opening address being made by Dr. F. W. Geissenhainer, Presi- 
dent of the Board; the charge to the Professors given by the Rev. B. M. 
Schmucker, English Secretary, and the inaugural in behalf of the Faculty 
by Dr. Krauth. 

October 4th, the Seminary opened in rooms on the second floor of the 
Lutheran Publication Society, 42 North Ninth Street, Philadelphia, with 
eleven students. 

Mr. Charles F. Norton, of St. Mark's Church, Philadelphia, son-in-law 
of the Rev. Benjamin Keller, gave $30,000 to endow the first Professorship. 

The Philadelphia Seminary was the first Lutheran institution in the 
country to provide a standard course in Theology covering three full years. 

1865 

June 14th, the endowment of the second Professorship was assumed by 
the Ministerium. 

The purchase of a Seminary building, 212 Franklin Street, north of 
Race Street, was approved, arid a Constitution adopted. 

1866 

The first annual report of the Board of Directors showed twenty-five 
students in attendance, and subscriptions totaling $80,000. All funds were 
held by the Ministerium in trust for the Seminary. 

1867 

-i 

The first class to receive three years' instruction, and consisting of eight 
members, graduated. 

1869 

The Board of Directors was authorized to procure ground and erect a 
suitable building, but was not financially able to do so. 

1871 

Total funds in possession of the Seminary were reported as $76,000, of 
which $10,000 was invested in the Seminary building. The salary of the 
regular Professors was reported as entirely inadequate, one of them only 
having received one-third of his salary to date, and the Assistant Professors 
having received no compensation whatsoever. 

11 



PHILADELPHIA SEMINARY RECORD 

1872 

The Ministerium of New York offered to endow a Professorship and 
to pay $2,000 a year salary for a Professor until the endowment, was com- 
pleted, which plan was accepted by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania. Mrs. 
Anna M. Burkhalter, of Trinity Church, New York City, also announced 
her intention of endowing an English Professorship. 

1873 

Dr. C. W. Schaeff er accepted the call as a regular Professor on the 
Burkhalter Foundation. 

The Ministerium accepted the total payments of $24,820 made by St. 
John's Church, Philadelphia, as entitling the congregation to a Professor- 
ship. Dr. C. F. Schaeffer was named as the first incumbent. 

The use of a building lot adjoining the Seminary building was given by 
Zion's and St. Paul's congregations, and the Seminary building was en- 
larged to accommodate sixty students, and opened February 10th. The 
Rev. C. F. Heyer was secured as House Chaplain and served until his 
death, in 1874. Sunday Schools and other societies contributed $2,200 
toward furnishing the rooms. 

The Rev. A. Spaeth was elected to the New York Ministerium Profes- 
sorship, and September 10th he and Dr. C. W. Schaeffer were installed, thus 
making five regular professors in the Faculty. 

1875 

Fifty-six students were reported in attendance. Dr. Mann became 
House Chaplain. 

1879 

The number of members of the. Board was changed to forty, of whom 
thirty-two were elected by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania and eight by 
the New York Ministerium. This ratio was determined by the fact that 
the Ministerium of Pennsylvania had contributed $170,000 for buildings 
and endowment, and the New York Ministerium had assumed responsibility 
for $30,000. 

1881 

The question of possible removal to secure more healthful conditions 
was discussed. Several deaths had occurred among the students in previous 
years. The need for proper room for the Library and for a resident 
Professor was greatly felt. 

1882 

Theodore E. Schmauk, then a student in the Seminary, reorganized the 
Library and founded and edited the Indicator. 

12 



HISTORICAL SUMMARY 

1883 

January 2d, Dr. Krauth died. His family presented the greater part of 
his h'brary, considered one of the finest private theological collections in the 
country, to the Seminary. The Ministerium accepted it for the Institution 
and provided an annuity of $500 in favor of Mrs. Krauth, which was 
continued until: her death in 1900. 

The Ministerium undertook as part of the celebration of the 400th 
anniversary of Luther's birth, to enter upon an effort to erect new buildings. 

May 16th, Dr. Henry E. Jacobs was elected Norton Professor of 
Systematic Theology to succeed Dr. Krauth. 

1884 

A Committee of the Board of Directors appointed to examine sites, 
after considering more than a hundred, recommended the purchase of a 
tract of six acres beyond the Fifty-second Street Station of the Pennsyl- 
vania Railroad in West Philadelphia. The Library was stored in a ware- 
house. 

The Rev. Reuben Hill, D.D., was called as Agent of the Seminary, 
October 1st. 

1885 

The West Philadelphia site was purchased for $24,506.85. Sixty-two 
students in the Seminary. 

1886 

April 12th, a special meeting of the Board considered a report of the 
Building Committee, which, because of dissatisfaction with the West Phila- 
delphia site, had examined twenty additional sites, and recommended the 
purchase of a property in Mt. Airy. 

June 14th, this location was. visited, and the Ministerium, at its meeting, 
authorized the purchase of the Mt. Airy property, nearly six acres, on 
Germantown Avenue at Allen Lane, for $35,741.83. The Synod authorized 
an issue of bonds for $30,000 and the sale of the Fifty-second Street prop- 
erty. The sum of $100,000 was apportioned to the parishes to secure funds 
for new buildings. The Mt. Airy property was purchased from the Gowen 
family, September 29th. It is rich in historical associations, being the 
former home of Chief Justice Allen prior to the Revolution, and the actual 
site of the beginning of the Battle of Germantown. Later a Military 
Academy and afterwards an Agricultural College had been conducted here. 

1888 

April 15th, work was begun on the new dormitory, 'a three-story build- 
ing approximately 110 feet square, composed of seven compartments

the Seminary on North Ninth Street, the new buildings at Mt. Airy were 
dedicated, and the Seminary began its work there. In the first twenty-five 
years of its history 321 graduates had left its walls. 

Several thousand people were reported present at the dedication. The 
Matin Service was used. Dr. Seiss, President of the Board, delivered the 
address and conducted the Service of Dedication. Dr. Krotel. and Dr. 
Spaeth also delivered addresses.

E. T. Horn, of Charleston, S. C. ; A. Richter, Rochester, N. Y. (German) ; 
W. A. Passavant, Jr., of Pittsburgh; J. J. Heischmann, of New York, and 
Dr. D. H. Geissinger, of Easton. 

A memorial number of the Indicator, founded by Dr. Schmauk and now 
edited by the Rev. Paul G. Klingler, contained the program of exercises, 
extracts of the addresses, etc. The first edition of 3,000 copies was 
exhausted and a second printed. 

Professor H. E. Jacobs was appointed Resident Professor and placed 
in charge of the inner administration. 

1891 

May 19th, twenty-seven students were graduated and eighty-nine were 
reported in attendance during the year.

The old Seminary property on Franklin Street was sold for $18,450. 



1893 

January 10th, the Synod in special session approved a revised Constitu- 
tion of the Seminary, and recommended its legal incorporation. The pro- 
posed Charter was adopted by the Synod at its regular meeting, May 29th. 
The number of directors was fixed at thirty-six, of which the Ministeriutn 
pf Pennsylvania should elect at least twenty-four. 

1894 

A legacy of $10,000 was received from the estate of Mr. Isaac Fegely, 
of Pottstown. The house for the use of Professor Spaeth was built next

Dr. C. W. Schaeffer resigned his Professorship and was made Professor 
Emeritus, continuing lectures on Pastoral Theology, and presiding over 
the Faculty until his death, in 1896.

A legacy amounting to $53,553 was received from the estate of Henry 
Singmaster and his wife, Rosanna Singmaster, of Stroiidsburg, Pa. 

15 



PHILADELPHIA SEMINARY RECORD 

Miss Elizabeth Schaeffer, of the Church of the Holy Communion, gave 
$30,000, half of which was devoted to the erection of two Professors' 
houses, which were built in this year. The balance was devoted to other 
necessary improvements, and* to the entire cost of the Boyer Street house 
erected two years before. * 

The expansion of the Seminary life made more and more evident the 
need of a Library building and of a Chapel. 

1897 

Ninety -two students in attendance. The report of the Dean, analyzing 
the statistics of the last eight classes graduated, showed the requirements 
of the Church to have been for pastors preaching exclusively in English, 
51 per cent, of the graduates; pastors preaching exclusively in German, 10 
per cent. ; pastors preaching partly in German, 46 per cent. 

The West Philadelphia property was sold for $22,123.50. 

1899 

The Board of Directors made alterations to the stone barn previously 
fitted up as a gymnasium by the Student Association, and provided a com- 
modious chapel, reading rooms, etc., at an expenditure of $3,500. The 
former Chapel was converted into a much needed lecture room and made a 
memorial to the Rev. Reuben Hill, D.D., former Superintendent of the 
Seminary. 

1901 

Students in attendance, sixty-four. Of the twenty-five graduated, sixteen 
were from the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, four from the New York 
Ministerium, and one each from the Pittsburgh, Michigan, Tennessee and 
Missouri Synods respectively, and one from the United Evangelical Church.' 

1903 

Students in attendance, fifty. The establishment of other Lutheran 
Seminaries and the general decline in candidates for the ministry was 
responsible for the decrease. 

A reorganization of the Board of Directors was effected, and the New 
York Ministerium, the Pittsburgh Synod and the Synod of New York and 
New England accepted the invitation of the Ministerium to elect two 
directors each, one clerical and one lay, as members of the Board. 

/ 

September 16th, the Schaeffer-Ashmead Memorial Church, presented by 
Dr. William Ashmead Schaeffer, '69, to the Seminary in memory of his 
parents, Professor Charles W. Schaeffer, D.D., LL.D., and Elizabeth Ash- 
mead Schaeffer, was dedicated, Dr. Krotel preaching the sermon. The new

building is of Chestnut Hill stone, 50 by 90 feet, with a Chapel in the rear 
36 by 50 feet. 

1904 

Number of students, fifty-eight. 

* 

June 20th, Dr. Seiss, for nearly forty years President of the Board of 
Directors, died. 

1905 

Number of students, seventy-five. 

1906 

January 8th, Mr. B. Frank Weyman, of the First Church, Pittsburgh 
(whose name was not disclosed until after his death), in response to a 
letter from Dean Henry E. Jacobs, offered to give $50,000 for a Krauth 
Memorial Library Building, and subsequently named the Rev. Luther D. 
Reed, '95, as his personal representative, with Drs. Jacobs and Spaeth, for 
the carrying out of this work. May 24th, an additional gift of $50,000 
from Mr. Weyman was received through Mr. Reed to make possible the 
completion and equipment of the building along the lines that had been 
projected by his representatives. The Board appointed a Building Com- 
mittee with the Rev. Dr. E. T. Horn, Chairman. Mr. Reed was elected 
Director of the Library. 

September 27th (Seminary Day), the cornerstone of the Library was 
laid. 

1907 

March 1st, the Director of the Library organized a staff with Miss 
Mary E. Kaighn as Assistant Librarian, and work was begun on cataloging 
the collection. 

May 20th, the Rev. Dr. G. F. Krotel, one of the founders of the 
Seminary, a Professor, 1864-68, and President of the Board of Directors, 
1904-07, died. 

The property, 7206 Boyer Street, with a residence and lot 115 by 240 
feet, was purchased for $14,000, $5,000 of this being appropriated with the 
consent of the donor from the Library Building Fund. This purchase 
provided ground for future extension to the Library and gave an outlet 
from the Seminary grounds to Boyer Street. 

The Central Heating Plant was built and the Warren Webster System 
installed to heat all the buildings on the grounds at a cost of about $25,000. 

1908 

February 17th, the collection of books was moved from the third floor 
of the Lecture Hall and safely placed in the new Library Building.

PHILADELPHIA SEMINARY RECORD 

"it has made possible a revolution of method and material; it has greatly 
furthered the advanced work of the Graduate School, and has encouraged 
habits of reading and research among many of the abler and more recent 
students. It has devoted a vast amount of time to more general interests 
of the Church, especially in connection with the editing of the Common 
Service Book. It has made a good beginning by keeping in touch with the 
Alumni and others and supplying them with literature for special investi- 
gation. The circulation during this year has increased 33 per cent, over 
that of the preceding year." 

1918 

The value of the Seminary property was reported at approximately 
$350,000. $112,000 was received from the General Education Fund, which

with the annual meeting of the Eastern Conference of the New York and 
New England Synod, at which all the Professors delivered lectures and
