Charles Augustus Goodrich

Appleton's & Klos Biography - A Stan Klos Comopany

GOODRICH, Charles Augustus, clergyman, born in Ridgefield, Connecticut, in 1790; died in Hartford, Connecticut, 4 January 1862. He was graduated at Yale in 1812, studied theology with Dr. Yates, of East Hartford, and in 1816 was ordained and installed as pastor of the 1st Congregational Church in Worcester, Massachusetts, where he remained four years. In 1820 he settled in Berlin, Connecticut, and in 1848 removed to Hartford, where he held a pastorate. He was a member of the state senate, and held other offices of trust. He was associated with his brother Samuel (Peter Parley) in writing books for the young, and also published the following volumes independently: "View of Religions" (1829) ; " Lives of the Signers" (Hartford, 1829 ; 2d ed., New York, 1836); " History of the United States of America " (Boston, 1852-'5; revised edition, 1867); "Family Tourist" (1848) ; "Family Sabbath-Day Miscellany" (Philadelphia, 1855); "Geography of the Chief Places mentioned in the Bible " (New York, 1855) ; " Greek Grammar " (Hartford, 1855); " Child's History of the United States" (Philadelphia, 1855); "Bible History of Prayer" (1855);" Great Events of American History" ; "Outlines of Geography" ; and "Universal Traveller."--

Pictured above, Charles Augustus's brother, Samuel Griswold Goodrich (PETER PARLEY), author, born in Ridgefield, Connecticut, 19 August, 1793; died in New York City, 9 May, 1860, in 1823-'4 traveled abroad, and on returning to the United States became a book-publisher in Hartford, Connecticut, and began to issue juvenile tales there. Removing thence to Boston, from 1828 till 1842 he edited an original annual, " The Token." The contributions and illustrations to this were exclusively the products of American authors and artists, and it contained poems, tales, and essays, from the pen of the editor. The encouragement that he gave to young writers became proverbial. Among these was Nathaniel Hawthorne, the best of whose "Twice-Told Tales " appeared originally in " The Token." In 1838-'9 Mr. Goodrich was in the Massachusetts senate, and did much to improve and reform legislation. He established, and from 1841 till 1854 edited, "Merry's Museum and Parley's Magazine." He was consul of the United States in Paris from 1851 till 1855, during Fillmore's administration. While there he arranged for the publication of a series of books in France, under his supervision. Mr. Goodrich published altogether about 200 volumes, mainly juvenile and educational, which achieved a wide popularity. About 170 of the number were issued under the name of "Peter Parley." Their popularity in this country led to their republication in Europe, and subsequently his pen name was fraudulently attached to over seventy volumes in this country and abroad.

Mr. Goodrich retired from active authorship in 1859. While most of his publications were of the character of compilations, he issued some meritorious original books. His publications include "The Poetical Works of John Trumbull" (1820); "Tales of Peter Parley about America" (New York, 1827); similar books on Europe, Asia, Africa, and other countries (1828-'34) ; "Outlines of Chronology, Ancient and Modern" (Boston, 1832) ; "The Outcast and other Poems" (New York, 1836) ; "Fireside Education" (1838) ; "Pictorial Geography of the World " (Boston, 1841);" Sketches from a Student's Window" (1841); "Pictorial Natural History" (2 vols., 1842 ; 2d ed., 1859) ; "Poems" (New York, 1851) ; "Faggots for the Fireside" (1854); " Winter Wreath of Summer Flowers" (1854); " History of All Nations " (1855) ; "Personal Recollections of Poets, Philosophers, and Statesmen "(1856) ; "Thousand and One Stories of Fact, Fancy, and Humor, Rhyme, Reason, and Romance " (1858) ; " The Captive of Nootka " (Philadelphia, 1859); and "Illustrated Natural History of the Animal Kingdom" (2 vols., 1859). A full list of his works up to 1857, and also a list of works attributed to him, is contained in his " Recollections of a Lifetime, in a Series of Familiar Letters "(New York, 2 vols., 1857).-

Samuel Griswold's son, Frank Boott Goodrich, author, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 14 December 1826, was graduated at Harvard in 1845. He was first brought into notice by his Paris letters to the "New York Times," signed " Dick Tinto," which were collected into a volume entitled " Tri-colored Sketches of Paris" (New York, 1854). His other published works are as follows: "Court of Napoleon, or Society under the First Empire" (New York, 1857); " History of Maritime Adventure, Exploration, and Discovery" (Philadelphia, 1858); "Women of Beauty and Heroism " (New York, 1859) ; "Flirtation and what comes of It," a comedy in five acts (1861); " The Tribute-Book, a Record of the Munificence, Self- Sacrifice, and Patriotism of the American People during the War for the Union" (New York, 1865); "World-Famous Women, from Semiramis to Eugenie" (1870); "Remarkable Voyages" or Man upon the Sea" (Philadelphia, 1873). He also began the translation of Balzac's novels into English, but, after the publication of two volumes (New York, 1860), the enterprise was abandoned. It was resumed in 1886 by a Boston house.
