BUTLER, John Jay, clergyman, born in Berwick, Maine, 9 April, 1814. He was graduated at Bowdoin in 1837, taught school in Parsonfield and Farmington, Maine, in 1838-'9, and was principal of Clinton seminary, New York, in 1841-'2. After graduation at Andover theological seminary in 1844, he was ordained as a Free Baptist, 28 January, 1846. He was professor of systematic theology at the seminary in Whitestown, New York, from 1844 till 1854, when he went to fill the same chair in the New Hampton, New Hampshire, theological institute. He was professor of theology in Bates College from 1870 till 1873, and in the latter year was appointed to the chair of sacred literature in Hillsdale College, Michigan. In 1860 Bowdoin gave him the degree of D.D. He has published many theological works, including "Natural and Revealed Theology" (Dover, New Hampshire, 1861); "Commentary on the Gospels" (1870); and "Commentary on the Acts, Romans, and First and Second Corinthians" (1871).
