PREFACE. 



Thb present is the first attempt that has been made to prepare a Biographical 
Catalogue of Washington and Jefferson College. In 1872 a General Catalogue 
was published, but it contained little besides a list of names. The present work 
has been one of great difficulty, from the fact that so little has been done to pre- 
serve the history of the classes. Very largely, even the Annual Catalogues have 
been lust, and no class histories had been written, with few exceptions, until a 
comparatively late day. 

Jefferson College covers a period of sixty-four years, from 1802 to 1865, 
Washington a period of sixty years, from 1806 to 1865, with very little attempt 
to perpetuate their histories. 

Alumni Associations have existed at various times, but have not been of long 
continnance. A reorganization was effected in 1884, with Rev. John M. 
Bameit as Secretary, and A. M. Todd, Esq., as Corresponding Secretary. It 
waa then decided to publish an Annual that should contain the Class Histories 
of each successive year, and in this way preserve the histories of the classes. 
It was also resolved to publish a Biographical Catalogue of tlie original and 
the nnited institutions. 

The Secretaries then prepared a circular calling for information, and sent it 
to the Alumni and their friends, as far as their addresses could be obtained. Two 
jean ago the undersigned was appointed to co-operate with the Executive Com- 
mittee and to undertake the preparation of the Catalogue. The latter work 
commenced in November, 1886. Up to that time 1,030 circulars had been 
received. Since then the Secretary, Mr. Barnett, and the undersigned have put 
forth vigorous efforts to secure the data of the remaining 2,424 Alumni. In this 
we have been assisted by the present Corresponding Secretary, James I. Btx)wn- 
Bon, Jr., Esq. 

In the matter of collecting the data of the old students, we have been suc- 
cessful beyond our most sanguine hopes. Of the entire number of the Alumni 
(3,455), data has been secured, in greater or less fullness, of over ninety-eight per 
cent, of the whole. 

It i;? greatly to the credit of these venerable institutions, that of Jefferson, 
with 1,936 Alumni, only twenty have been so utterly lost to history as to be 
wholly untraceable ; and of Washington, with 872 Alumni, only fifteen have 
passed out of all knowledge of the biographer. Some of a later day in 
Washington and Jefferson College, can be found, but either neglected or declined 
giving any points in their histories, and appear blank in the Catalogue.

BIOORAPHICAL CATALOGUE. 



The plan has been to enroll only gradwOmj and Bach anderg^radaatea as after- 
ward received honorary degrees. The latter are designated by A. B. and A. M.; 
and as A.M. was for many years given to all graduates who had studied a 
profession, no degrees are mentioned in the body of the work below Ph.D., 
except such as were conferred on undergraduates. 

As the Catalogue is now pi^esentod, iier4 {s . a grand array of names of men 
famous in the history of the Church and of ttie country— men who attained to the 
highest positions in the land, and who were, and are, a mighty power for good. 
Their influence has been felt in every part of our wide country. 

Thanks are hereby tendered to Class Historians for their labors, and to 
friends and sympathizers with this undertaking, for most valuable aid in gath- 
ering data, and furnishing it most cheerfully. 

Mistakes will, no doubt, be found in many instances, but there has been the 
desire to make the work as perfect and reliable as possible. 

With these brief remarks the Catalogue is commended to the old students of 
Jefferson, and Washington, and Washington and Jefferson, and their friends, 
trusting that it will revive old associations, shed light on the histories of old 
friendships, and classmates, and reflect credit on our common Alma Mater.

OF 

Jefferson College, 

Ganonsburg, 1?a., 

IFrom the tinw it was chartered, ia 1802, uatil its 
union, with 'lAToshington College, in 1865. 



Bi|iE^ Jfistorrical J^otice. 



The early settlers of Western Pennsylvania, like those of New England, were 
distingaished for their love of religion and of learning. They planted tlie 
charch and the school-house side by side. The first ministers who were settled 
in this r^on, early directed their attention to the raising up of a ministry at 
home, for the supply of the wants of the growing population. For this purpose, 
mainly, several of them opened classical schools, in log-cabins near their own 
dwellings. The Rev. Messrs. John M'Miixan, Joseph Smith and Thaddeus 
DoD, pastors of the congregations of Chartiers, Buffalo and Ten Mile, had such 
schools in operation between the years 1780 and 1790. The first of these men, 
if not the earliest, as is commonly believed, was the most efficient in this good 
work ; and his ** Latin School" has gained the most celebrity, from its intimate 
connection with the origin of Jefferson College. The Canonsburg Academy 
was commenced in 1791, under the patronage of Col. Canon, and Judges 
Allison, M'Dowell, and others. To this the pupils under the care of Dr. 
M'MiLLAN were soon afterward transferred. 

The first Principal of the Academy was Mr. David Johnston, a graduate of 
the University of Pennsylvania. He was assisted by Mr. (afterward Prof. ) 
Samuel Milleb, as Teacher of Mathematics. During the ensuing eleven 
years the Academy continued to prosper, under various competent instruc- 
tors; among whom were Messrs. James Cabnahan, afterward President of 
Princeton College, and John Watson, afterward first President of Jefferson 
College. In 1802 it was regularly chartered and organised a{ a College, being 
the first west of the mountains. 

During its existence as an Academy, the course of instruction which it 
afforded was but little less extensive than that of the colleges of that day in the 
Eaist. Here many of the most distinguished men in the Western country received 
their education, and may be ranked among the honored Alumni of the institu- 
tion, although their names do not appear as graduates under the college char- 
ter. Among them we find the well-known names of Cephas Dod, Elisha 
M'Cnrdy, Thos. £. Hughes, Thomas Marquis, Bobert Johnson, Joseph Stock- 
ton, Samuel Tait, James Satterfield, Obadiah Jennings, D. D., Wm. Neill, D. 
D., James Bamsey, D. D., James Hoge, D. D., Thos. M'Giffin, Esq., Joseph 
Patterson, Esq., Hon. Geo. Torrence, Gilbert M'Master, D. D., James Power, 
M. D.| and many others. * 



•An extended and excellent Hidory of Jtffenon CtjOm, by the Rev. Joseph Smith, D. D., 
author of "Old Redstone," was published in 1857, In which the Alumni and friends of the 
instllntlon will find an accurate and full account of the life of the College up to that date.

Ifistorical JM^otica 



Wasbinotoh Academy, from which Washington College sprang, was* 
chartered by the Legislature, Sept. 24, 1787 — five years after the town of Wash- 
ington was laid out, and six years after the establishment of Washington 
County, which was the first county formed after the Declaration of Independ- 
ence, and only second to Westmoreland, the Mother County of the West. The 
act of incorporation names the following persons as its first Trustees, in the fol- 
lowing order: Rev. John M'Mlllan, Rev. Joseph Smith, Rev. Thaddeuh 
DoDD, Rev. Jno. Clakk, Rev. Matthew Henderson, Rev. J no. Corbley, 
Jas. Mabshall, James Edgab, John M. McDowell, Alexander Wright, 
Jamf:s Allison, Thomas Scott, David Bradford, James Ross, David Red- 
dick, John Hoge, Alexander Addison, Thomas Crooks, James Flanna- 
QAN, Dr. Alexander Baikd and James Brice. . 

The Academy received, by a provision in its charter, a donation of five 
thousand acres out of the public lands of the State, the value of which at the 
time was UoerUif cents per acre. This land was taken chiefly in what is now 
Bearer County. For a long time it was unproductive, and involved the Board 
in much expense, but was eventually sold and the proceeds judiciously applied 
in carrying on the Institution. 

After much effort, the Academy was put in operation in 1789, under Rev. 
Thaddeus Dodd, who, in 1782, had opened, within his pastoral charge on Ten 
Mile, what its friends claim was '* the first classic&l and scientific school in the 
West.'* 

For the accommodation of the Academy, the upper rooms of the Court 
House were rented, and served the purpose until the building was destroyed by 
fire. This drove the Board to the erection of an Academy building, whicli is 
still standing, being the central stone building of the old College. In that 
building, and in the temporary structure which preceded it, David Johnston, 
James Dobbins, Benjamin Mills, and others, carried on the Academy with vary- 
ing success during the years preceding its transformation into a College. 

In the spring of 1805, Rev. Matthew Brown became at once Principal of 
the Academy and the first pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Washington. 
He was assisted as Principal first by David Klliott, and afterward by CrKOROK 
Baird; and such was the success of the Institution, under their management, 
that, on the 28th of March, 1800, an act was passed by the Legislature granting 
the Trustees the charter of a College. 

The minutes of the Trustees have no record of the graduates, until a meet- 
ing held Sept. 27, 1831. This list of the Alumni was prepared by Thomas H. 
Elliott, M.D., after very great research and labor, and is believed to be entirely 
correct. It is certainly by far the most accurate ever yet published. 

At the semi-centennial anniversary in 1856, a very full historical address 
was delivered by Rev. James I. Brownson, D.D., of the class of 1886. Most of 
the above is quoted from that address.

* By the terms of the agreement with the Synod of Wheeling, the members of the Board 
were to resign, and their places to be filled from the nominees of the Synod, except aguorum, 
who were to resign in like manner one year thereafter. The College was taken into the 
official connection with the Synod, November 9, iBsa, when, as will be seen, a large number 
did resign; many of these, however, beinif nominees of the Synod, were immediaiely 
re-elected and took their scats. The same regulation included also the Faculty, which will 
explain the resignation and the immediate re-election of Professors Alrich, Murray and 
McfCennan, on the next day, November 10, 1852.
