GOODWIN, Daniel Raynes, clergyman, born in North Berwick, Maine, 12 April, 1811. He was graduated at Bowdoin at the head of his class in 1832, and entered Andover theological seminary, but left in 1835 to become a tutor in Bowdoin, where he soon afterward became professor of modern languages, first spending two years in Europe in preparation. He remained at Bowdoin until 1853, and while there took orders in the Protestant Episcopal Church, being ordained deacon, 13 July, 1847, and priest, 10 September. 1848. He became president of Trinity College, Hartford, in 1853, and professor of Christian ethics, but removed to Philadelphia in 1860 to become provost of the University of Pennsylvania, where he taught intellectual and moral philosophy. In addition to this, when, in 1862, the diocesan divinity-school was organized, he took the professorship of apologetics, which he exchanged in 1865 for that of systematic divinity. He resigned his office in the University in 1868, in order to devote himself to the divinity-school. He was made its dean, and held the office till 1884, when he again became professor. The University then conferred upon him the degree of LL.D., and he had previously received that of D. D. from Bowdoin in 1853. He has been sent as a delegate to every general convention of his Church in the United States for twenty-five years, is one of the foremost low-Church presbyters in Pennsylvania, and for many years not only has been president of the standing committee of his diocese, but has largely directed its legislation. Among his publications are "Southern Slavery in its Present Aspects," containing a reply to Bishop Hopkins on slavery (1864) ; "The New Realistic Divinity neither the Religion of the Bible and Prayer-Book nor of the Holy Catholic Church" (1879) ; a "Memorial Discourse on Henry W. Longfellow," before the alumni of Bowdoin College (1882); "Notes on the Revision of the New Testament Version" (1883); and "Christian Eschatology" (1885).
