HUNTINGTON, Frederick Dan, P. E. bishop, born in Hadley, Massachusetts, 28 May, 1819. His father, Dan Huntington, was a graduate and tutor of Yale, and had charge of Congregational churches in Connecticut, but subsequently became a Unitarian. He published "Personal Memoirs" (1857). The son was graduated at Amherst in 1839, and at Harvard divinity school in 1842. He was then ordained pastor of the South Congregational church in Boston, and in 1855 became preacher to Harvard, and Plummer professor of Christian morals in that university, which post he held till 1860. He also served as chaplain and preacher to the Massachusetts legislature. He withdrew from the Unitarian denomination, and took orders in the Protestant Episcopal church in 1860. He then organized the Emmanuel parish of Boston, and was its rector until he was consecrated bishop of central New York, 8 April, 1869. In 1861 he established with Dr. George M. Randall the " Church Monthly." He has contributed to various reviews and periodicals, and published many sermons and addresses. Among these are "Sermons for the People" (Boston, 1836; 9th ed., 1869); "Lessons on the Parables of our Saviour " (1856); "Sermons on Christian Living and Believing" (1860); "Lectures on Human Society as illustrating the Power, Wisdom, and Goodness of God" (1860); "Elim, or Hymns of Holy Refreshment" (1865); "Lessons for the Instruction of Children in the Divine Life" (1868); "Helps to a Holy Lent" (1872); and "Steps to a Living Faith" (1873). Bishop Huntington has edited various works, including Archbishop Whately's "Christian Morals" (1856); and "Memorials of a Quiet Life" (1874). He was chosen by the house of bishops to write the "Pastoral Letter," and to read the same at the general convention of 1883 in Philadelphia. Amherst gave him the degree of LL.D. in 1887.
