Austin Phelps

PHELPS, Austin, clergyman, born in West Brookfield, Massachusetts, 7 January, 1820. He was graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in 1837, studied at Andover and Union theological seminaries, was pastor of Pine street Congregational church in Boston in 1842-'8, and professor of sacred rhetoric in Andover theological seminary in 1848-'79. He was elected its president in 1869, and since 1879 has been professor emeritus. Amherst gave him the degree of D. D. in 1856. His publications include " The Still Hour" (Boston, Edinburgh, and London, 1858) ; "The New Birth" (1867); "The Solitude of Christ" (1868) ; "Studies of the Old Testament" (1878); "The Theory of Preaching" (New York, 1881) ; "Men and Books" (1882) ; "My Portfolio" (1882) ; "English Style in Public Discourse" (1883) ; "My Study, and Other Essays" (1886) ; and "My Note-Book, or Fragmentary Studies in Theology" (in preparation). He also published various sermons and addresses from 1848 till 1868, among which are "Election Sermon to the Government of Massachusetts" (Boston, 1861), and edited "Hymns and Choirs" with Professor Edwards A. Park and Reverend David Furber (New York, 1859), and "Sabbath Hymn-Book" with Professor Park and Dr. Lowell Mason (1859).--His wife, Elizabeth Stuart, author, born in Andover, Massachusetts, 13 August, 1815; died in Boston, Massachusetts, 30 November, 1852, was the eldest daughter of Professor Moses Stuart, of Andover, and early attained popularity by her sketches of New England life, in a series of tales that were published under the pen-name of "H. Trusta," an anagram of her maiden name. In 1842 she married Mr. Phelps. She possessed much imaginative talent, and gave promise of a successful literary career, which was terminated by her early death. Her publications include "The Kitty Brown Series" (Philadelphia, 1850) ; "Sunny Side," a story descriptive of life in a country parsonage, which had previously been rejected by several publishers, but reached a sale of 100,000 copies in one year (Andover, 1851; republished in Edinburgh); "A Peep at Number Five" (1851); and the "Angel over the Right Shoulder" (1851). After her death appeared "The Tell-Tale " (1852) : " Little Mary" (Boston, 1853) ; and "The Last Sheaf from Sunny Side," with a memorial of the author by her husband (1853).--Their daughter, Elizabeth Stuart, author, born in Andover, Massachusetts, 13 August, 1844, began to write for the press at thirteen years of age. Much of her life has been devoted to benevolent work in her native town, to the advancement of women, and to temperance and kindred reforms. She delivered a course of lectures before the students of Boston university in 1876. Her publications include "Ellen's Idol" (Boston, 1864) ; " Up Hill " (1865) ; " The Tiny Series" (4 vols., 1866-'9) ; " The Gypsy Series" (4 vols., 1866-'9); "Mercy Gliddon's Work" (1866); "I Don't Know How" (1867) ; "The Gates Ajar," which reached a twentieth edition within the year of its publication (1868) ; " Men, Women, and Ghosts" (1869) ; "Hedged In" (1870) ; "The Silent Partner" (1870) ; "The Trotty Book" (1870) ; "Trotty's Wedding Tour" (1873) ; "What to Wear" (1873) ; "The Good Aim Series" (1874); "Poetic Studies," poems (1875); "The Story of Avis" (1877) ; "My Cousin and I" (1879); "Old Maids' Paradise" (1879) ; "Sealed Orders" (1879); "Friends, a Duet" (1881) ; "Beyond the Gates" (1883) ; " Dr. Zay" (1884) ; "The Gates Between" (1887): and "Jack the Fisherman" (1887).
