HAVEN, Joseph, clergyman, born in Dennis, Massachusetts, 4 January, 1816; died in Chicago, Illinois, 23 May, 1874. His parents removed to Amherst, Massachusetts, and he was graduated at the college in 1835. For two years he taught in the New York deaf and dumb institution, studying at the same time in Union theological seminary. He was graduated at the Andover seminary in 1839, and ordained pastor of the Congregational church in Ashland, Massachusetts, where he remained until 1846. He then accepted a call to the Harvard church, Brookline, Massachusetts, and held this charge until 1850, editing at the same time "The Congregationalist." He was professor of mental and moral philosophy in Amherst from 1850 till 1858, and of systematic theology in the Chicago theological seminary from 1858 till 1870, when he resigned on account of failing health. He then visited Germany, Palestine, and Egypt, after which he devoted himself to preaching and lecturing upon ancient and modern philosophy and the English classics. In 1873 he became acting professor of mental and moral philosophy in the Chicago university, which office he held until his death. He was a close student, remarkable for the extent and thoroughness of his scholarship. He received the degree of D. D. from Marietta in 1859 and Amherst in 1862, and that of LL.D. from Kenyon in the latter year. He published "Mental Philosophy" (Boston, 1857); "Moral Philosophy" (1859); "Studies in Philosophy and Theology" (Andover, 1869); and a work on "Systematic Divinity," which was completed a few weeks before his death (Boston, 1875).
