LIVERMORE, Abiel Abbot, clergyman, born in Wilton, New Hampshire, 30 October, 1811. He was graduated at Harvard in 1833, and in the divinity school in 1836, and was ordained pastor of the Unitarian church in Keene, New Hampshire, in November of the latter year. He remained there until May, 1850, when he was called to a church in Cincinnati, Ohio. On 1 January, 1857, he removed to New York city to assume the editorship of the "Christian Inquirer," and in June of the same year he took charge of the 1st Unitarian Congregational church in Yonkers, New York, without relinquishing his journalistic duties. In 1863 he became president of the theological school at Meadville, Pennsylvania, which office he still (1887) fills. He is the author of "A Commentary on the New Testament" (6 vols., 1842-'81); "Lectures to Young Men" (1846); "The Marriage Offering," a compilation of prose and poetry (1848); "The War with Mexico Reviewed," a prize essay (1850), "Discourses" (1852); "Anti-Tobacco" (1883); and "History of Wilton, N. H," which will probably be published in 1888. He has edited Priestley's "Corruptions of Christianity" (Boston, 1838), and, with others, "Christian Hymns" (1845), a compilation that has passed through sixty editions, besides contributing to the "North American Review," "Christian Examiner," "Christian Repository," etc.
