HARRINGTON, Joseph, Jr., clergyman, born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, 21 February, 1813; died in San Francisco, California, 2 November, 1852. He was graduated at Harvard in 1833, and became principal of the academy at East Greenwich, Rhode Island, but at the end of six months took charge of the Hawes school at South Boston, where he remained for five years. While teaching he studied theology, and in the autumn of 1839 was sent as a missionary to Chicago, Illinois, by the American Unitarian association. After his ordination as an evangelist in Boston in September, 1840, Mr. Harrington returned to the west, and was the first to introduce the doctrines of his denomination in Milwaukee and other places. He held a pastorate in Hartford, Connecticut, from 1846 till 1852, when enfeebled health induced him to accept a call from San Francisco. He sailed from New York in July of that year, but in crossing the isthmus caught the Panama fever, which resulted fatally. After his death appeared a volume of his sermons, with a memoir by William Whiting (Boston, 1854).
