He was graduated at Emory college, Georgia, in 1859, and licensed to preach in the Methodist Episcopal church in the same year. In 1870-'5 he edited the Sunday school publications of the Methodist Episcopal church, south, and in 1876 he was elected president of Emory college, where he remained eight years. He was appointed general agent of the "John F.

Emory college conferred on him the degree of D.D. in 1870, and the Southwestern university, Texas, that of LL. D. in 1884.
