PAIGE, Lucius Robinson, author, born in Hard-wick, Massachusetts, 8 March, 1802. He is a nephew of the Reverend Reed Paige, and was educated at the academy in Hadley, Massachusetts, began preaching at the age of twenty-one, and was a Universalist minister till 1839. He was city clerk of Cambridge, Massachusetts, from that year till 1855, and then treasurer of the Cambridge-port savings bank till 1871. He has been a justice of the peace since 1843, and in 1878-'9 was a representative in the general court. After his retirement from the pastorate he continued to preach occasionally for thirty years. He received the degree of D.D. from Tufts college in 1861. In the earlier part of his life Dr. Tufts was a frequent contributor to various theological and historical periodicals. A polemic in reply to Timothy Merritt, printed in the "Religious Enquirer" of Hartford, Connecticut, in 1830, was issued in pamphlet-form under the title of "Universalism Defended." His next publication was "Selections from Eminent Commentators who have believed in Punishment after Death, wherein they have agreed with the Universalists" (Boston, 1833; revised eds., 1840 and 1859). "Questions on Select Portions of the Gospels" was published for the use of Sunday-schools and Bible-classes (Boston, 1838). Among his published addresses is one delivered on 15 November, 1838, at the centennial celebration in Hardwick (Cambridge, 1838). He gave many years of study to a "Commentary on the New Testament" (Boston, 1844-'70). Dr. Paige is also the author of a "History of Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1630-1877," with a genealogical register (Boston, 1877), and of a "History of Hardwick, Massachusetts," also accompanied by a genealogical register (1883).
