BISHOP, Robert Hamilton, clergyman, born near Edinburgh, Scotland, 26 July 1777; died at College Hill, Ohio, 29 April 1855. He was graduated at the University of Edinburgh in 1797, and came in 1801, at the solicitation of Dr. Mason, to New York City, where he preached a while in a Presbyterian Church. He then went as a missionary to the northwest territory, and arrived at Chil-Iicothe in 1802. He became a professor in Transylvania College in 1804. In consequence of difficulties with the Associate Reformed synod, which he had joined upon coming to America, he connected himself in 1819 with the central assembly, and accepted the presidency of Miami College in 1824, in which he remained till 1841. He continued there as professor of history and political science until 1844, and after that filled the chair of history and political economy in Farmers' College, near Cincinnati. His writings include "Sermons" (1808) ; "Memoirs of David Rice" (1824) ; " Elements of Logic " (1833) ; "Philosophy of the Bible" (1833); " Science of Government " (1839) ; and "Western Peacemaker" (1839).
