HEYWOOD, John Healy, clergyman, born in Worcester, Massachusetts, 30 March, 1818; died in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1880. He was graduated at Harvard in 1832, and at the divinity school there in 1840, entered the ministry and was called to the 1st Unitarian church at Louisville, Kentucky, succeeding Reverend James Freeman Clarke. He strove to obtain a public school system of high order for Louisville, and was for fourteen years president of the city school board, and for many years more a member. During the war he gave unremitting attention to the United States sanitary commission and to the relief of the needy in many other ways. The Old Ladies' Home in Louisville was partially an outgrowth of his activity. He was two years editor of the " Louisville Examiner," and a writer for the " Christian Register," "Unitarian Review," and other periodicals. He continued his pastorate in Louisville for over forty years, the oldest ministerial charge in the city.
