BAUGHER, Henry L., educator, born in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, about 1805; died in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 14 April 1868. He was graduated at Dickinson College, Carlisle, in 1825 ; studied theology at Princeton and Gettysburg; was licensed to preach by the Maryland Lutheran synod; was chosen pastor at Boonesboro, Maryland, in 1829, and took charge of a classical school in Gettysburg in 1830. The school expanded into a College in 1832, and Mr. Baugher became professor of the Greek language and belles-lettres, was elected to the presidency of the College in 1850, and continued in that office until his death. He was an able executive, a strict disciplinarian, an eloquent preacher, and a graceful writer. He contributed to the "Evangelical Review" and Lutheran papers, and published addresses and essays.
