BURT, Nathaniel Clark, clergyman, born in Fairton, New Jersey, 23 April, 1825; died in Rome, Italy, 4 March, 1874. He was graduated at Princeton in 1846, and took a three years' course in the theological seminary there. He was ordained by the Miami presbytery on 1 November, 1850, and, after a five years' pastorate at Springfield, Ohio, was called to the Franklin street Presbyterian church in Balti-snore in 1855, and in 1860 to the 7th Presbyterian church in Cincinnati. He spent most of the years 1866 and 1867 in travel abroad for his health, visiting Europe, Egypt, and Palestine, where his investigations added much to our knowledge of the localities and sites of places mentioned in the Scriptures. He was at last compelled by failing health to give up his pastorate, and was president of the Ohio female College from 1868 till 1870, when he was forced to resign this office also, and spent the rest of his life in southern Europe. Here he undertook the care of young ladies who wished to finish their education abroad, spending his winters in Rome, Dresden, or Nice, and snaking excursions to the principal cities of the continent. Dartmouth gave him the degree of D.D. in 1861. Dr. Burr wrote much for religious periodicals, and published "Hours among the Gospels" (Philadelphia, 1865); "The Far East" (Cincinnati, 1867); and " The Land and its Story " (New York, 1869).
