EDDY, Daniel Clarke, clergyman, born in Salem, Massachusetts, 21 May 1823. He was graduated at New Hampton theological institution, New Hampshire, in 1845, and in January 1846, was ordained to the ministry as pastor of the 1st Baptist Church, Lowell, Massachusetts, in which relation he continued for ten years. In 1850 he made a visit to Europe. In 1854 he was elected by the American or "know-nothing" party to a seat in the Massachusetts legislature, and on the organization of the house was chosen, quite unexpectedly to himself, to be its speaker. In 1856 he resigned the charge of the Church in Lowell, and in the interval between that year and the present has been pastor in Boston, Fall River, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn.
In 1881 he removed to the last-named place, where he is now (1.887) pastor of a Baptist Church. In 1861 he again went abroad, extending his trip to Palestine and Turkey. Madison University conferred upon him the degree of D.D. in 1856. Dr. Eddy has published "Young Man's Friend" (1st series, Lowell, 1849; 2d series, Boston, 1859); " The Burman Apostle" (Lowell, 1850); "Europa," a book of words (1851); " The Percy Family" (5 vols., 1852); "Waiter's Tour in the East " (6 vols., Boston, 1861); "Heroines of the Missionary Enterprise" (1854)" "Angel Whispers" (Lowell, 1853); "City Side" (1854); "Young Woman's Friend" (1855); and "Waiting at the Cross" (Boston, 1859).
