NADAL, Bernard Harrison, clergyman, born in Talbot county, Maryland, 27 March, 1812; died in Madison, New Jersey, 20 June, 1870. In 1835 he was admitted to the old Baltimore conference of the Methodist church, and he labored in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Brooklyn, New York, and New Haven, Connecticut. While stationed in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, he was graduated at Dickinson in 1848, and in 1854 accepted a professorship in Indiana Asbury university, which he held until 1857. While in Washington he served for one session as chaplain to the house of representatives. On the organization of Drew theological seminary he was made professor of church history, and on the death of Dr. John McClintock in 1870 he became acting president, which office he held at the time of his death. He received the degree of D. D. from Dickinson in 1857. Between 1854 and 1857 he published "Essays upon Church History" in the "Methodist Quarterly Review," and he was also an editor of the "Methodist." He was a strong opponent of slavery, and spoke frequently upon this subject. In his sermons and addresses he exerted much influence in favor of the National government during the civil war. A volume of his sermons, entitled "New Life Dawning," was published under the editorship of Professor Henry A.
