LOOS, Charles Louis, educator, born in Woerthsur-Sauer, Lower Alsace, 22 December, 1823. His parents, who were Protestants, removed to this country in 1824, and settled at New Franklin, Stark County, Ohio, where his father died a few days after their arrival. The son studied in the town school, and at the age of sixteen began teaching. He was graduated at Bethany college in 1846, and was a teacher there for three years, after which he removed to Wellsburg, Virginia, to take pastoral charge of the Christian church there. After holding pastorates in Somerset, Pennsylvania, and Cincinnati, Ohio, he was called to the presidency of Eureka college, Illinois, and in 1858-'80 held the chair of ancient languages in Bethany college. He was then elected to the presidency of Kentucky university at Lexington. For several years Mr. Loos was associate editor of the "Disciple," a monthly, and of the " Sower," a religious weekly in Pennsylvania, and of the "Christian Age," the chief weekly organ of his church at Cincinnati. Afterward, for seven years, he was co-editor with Professor W. K. Pendleton of the "Millennial Harbinger," and at present is contributing editor of the "Christian Standard," of Cincinnati.
