NORTHROP, Harry Pinckney, R. C. bishop, born in Charleston, South Carolina, 5 May, 1842. He began his classical studies at Georgetown college, D. C., but his health failed, and he was removed to Mount St. Mary's college, Emmettsburg, Maryland, where he was graduated in 1860. The same year he entered the theological seminary there, and after studying four years went to Rome and entered the American college. He was ordained priest in Rome in June, 1865. On his return to the United States he was for several months attached to the Church of the Nativity in New York. In 1866 he went to Charleston, South Carolina, and was stationed at St. Joseph's church for one year as assistant pastor. In 1868 he volunteered for the missions in North Carolina, and was four years at New Berne in that state. Again returning to Charleston, he was for six years assistant pastor of the pro-cathedral and pastor of Sullivan's island. His next charge was St. Patrick's church, Charleston, of which he was pastor for one year. He was raised to the episcopate on 8 January, 1882, as vicar-apostolic of North Carolina, receiving the title of bishop of Rosalia. He was consecrated in the cathedral of Baltimore by Archbishop Gibbons. By papal brief of 27 January, 1883, he was transferred to the see of Charleston, South Carolina, retaining the administration of the vicariate of North Carolina. He was present at the third plenary council of Baltimore in 1884.
