DRYSDALE, Alexander Irvin, clergyman, born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1841; died in Waukesha, Wis., 30 August 1866. He entered the Protestant Episcopal ministry in early manhood, and after a few years' service in his native City received a call from Mobile, where he remained seven years. In 1880 he returned to New Orleans as rector of Christ Church. A few days before his death he was elected to the vacant bishopric at Easton, Maryland, but it was not supposed by his friends that he would have accepted, as he was greatly interested in the growth of his own parish. His congregation was much attached to him, and built him one of the finest Church edifices in the City. Dr. Drysdale was a man of extensive learning, but was noted rather for the zeal with which he engaged in his pastoral work than for his eloquence. He died in Wisconsin, where he had gone for his health.
