HASBROUCK, Abraham Bruyn, lawyer, born in Kingston, New York, in November, 1791; died there, 23 February, 1879. He was graduated at Yale in 1810, studied law at Hudson, New York, and Litchfield, Connecticut, and was admitted to the bar in 1813. He practised his profession in Kingston, and in 1825-'7 served one term in congress. Columbia gave him the degree of LL.D. in 1828, and in 1840-'50 he was president of Rutgers college, contributing much to its prosperity by his lectures on constitutional law. He also planted and cared for many of the fine trees that now adorn the college grounds. Mr. Hasbrouck was vice president of the American Bible society in 1851, and president of the Ulster county historical society in 1856. He was dignified and scholarly, of genial manners and generous hospitality.
