PEASE, Calvin, clergyman, born in Canaan, Litchfield County, Connecticut, 12 August, 1813; died in Burlington, Vermont, 17 September, 1863. He was graduated at the University of Vermont in 1838, and was president of Montpelier academy in 1839-'41. He became professor of Latin and Greek in the University of Vermont in 1842, and in 1845 was appointed its president, and ordained to the ministry of the Congregational church. While president of the university, he was a member of the state board of education, president of the Vermont teachers' organization, and took an active part in unifying the common-school system. Failing health induced his resignation in 1861, and he became pastor of the 1st Presbyterian church in Rochester, New York, where he was especially active in the revival of 1863. Middlebury gave him the degree of D. D. in 1865, and he became a member of the American philosophical society in 1863. He was a constant contributor to the "Bibliotheca Sacra." His published addresses include "A Discourse on the Import and Value of the Popular Lecturing of the Day" (Montpelier, 1840): " Address before the Medical Department of the University" (1856); and "Baccalaureate Sermons" (1856-'6(J).
