HALL, Charles Henry, clergyman, born in Augusta, Georgia, 7 November, 1820. He was graduated at Yale in 1842, studied theology at the General Protestant Episcopal theological seminary in New York, and was ordained deacon in 1844, and priest in the following year. After holding pastorates at Huntington, L. I., West Point, New York, and John's Island, South Carolina, he became rector of the Church of the Epiphany, Washington, D. C., in 1856, and in 1869 was called to Holy Trinity, Brooklyn, New York, where he still remains (1887). Previous to the civil war and during that period Dr. Hall carefully avoided politics in his sermons. He has always been a Democrat, but took no active part in politics until 1884, when he made several addresses in favor of the election of Grover Cleveland to the presidency, and was chairman of the Democratic meeting held in Brooklyn in June of that year. Dr. Hall's theological views are broad, and he is clear and incisive as a pulpit orator. He is at the head of the standing committee of his diocese, is chaplain of the 23d New York regiment, a director in the Brooklyn historical society, and is connected with numerous ecclesiastical and charitable organizations" Dr. Hall was the intimate friend of Henry Ward Beecher, and co-worker with him in many religious enterprises, and was chosen by him to officiate at his funeral. He received the degree of D. D. from Hobart in 1860, and from Columbia in 1861. He has published Commentaries on the Gospels (Philadelphia, 1867); "Protestant Ritualism" (New York, 1871); and "Spine Christi" (1883).
