HOWELL, George Rogers, born in Southampton, New York, 15 June, 1833. He was graduated at Yale in 1854, and, after spending several years in teaching and in studying, he entered the Princeton theological seminary, and was graduated in 1864. When engaged in ministerial work in western New York, he was invited to deliver the address at the celebration of the 225th anniversary of his native place in 1865. At the close of this celebration he was requested by many of his townspeople to prepare a history of this town. He published "The Early History of Southampton, L. I., with Genealogies" (New York, 1866; 2d ed., Albany, 1887). In 1872 he was invited to take an office in the New York state library, to become familiar with its wants and its mode of administration, preparatory to becoming librarian when that post should become vacant. He has published historical and scientific pamphlets, and has written much for the newspapers. He published several papers in the "Transactions of the Albany Institute," including "Linguistic Discussions," "The Open Polar Sea," and "Heraldry in America."
