MULFORD, Elisha, clergyman, born in Montrose, Pennsylvania, 19 November, 1833" died in Cambridge, Massachusetts, 9 December, 1885. He was graduated at Yale in 1855, began the study of theology in Union theological seminary, New York city, and subsequently continued it in Halle and Heidelberg, Germany. He was ordained deacon in 1859, and priest in 1862. He was occupied in ministerial labors, first in Darien, Connecticut, in 1861, then in South Orange, New Jersey, in 1861-'4, and, after an interval of thirteen years, in Friendsville, Pennsylvania, in 1877-'81. From 1864 till 1877 he resided in his native town without parochial charge, but after 1881 he made his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he served as lecturer on apologetics in the Episcopal theological school. He received the degree of LL.D. from Yale in 1872. Dr. Mulford belonged to the school of Coleridge and Maurice in theological sentiment and expression, and is very much admired by those who sympathize with what is termed " the union of the utmost liberty of philosophic thought with Christian dogmas." His reputation is based on two publications, which have gone through numerous editions, "The Nation, the Foundation of Civil Order and Political Life in the United States" (New York, 1870), and " The Republic of God, an Institute of Theology" (1881).
