NORRIS, Herbert William, author, born in Wales, 21 July, 1818. He began a theological course of study in London, England, but was compelled to desist, owing to an affection of the eyes. He came to the United States in 1842, and, having recovered, was licensed to preach in 1846 by the presbytery of Utica, New York After holding pastorates in Martinsburg, Little Falls, and Rochester, New York, and in Indiana, he gave up ministerial work in 1877 to devote himself to literature. He had already published in 1870 "Science and the Bible" (Philadelphia), which soon reached a sale of 50,000 copies. This was followed in 1875 by "Present Conflict of Science with Religion." In 1880 appeared his "Testimony of the Ages to the Truth of Scripture," a work that involved great labor. His latest books are entitled "The Celestial Symbol, or the Natural Wonders and Spiritual Teachings of the Sun" (1883); and "Natural Laws and Gospel Teachings" (New York, 1887). The University of Rochester gave him the degree of D. D. in 1876.
