NEWMAN, Samuel Phillips, educator, born in Andover, Massachusetts, in 1796; died in Barre, Worcester County, Massachusetts, 10 February, 1842. He was the son of Mark H. Newman, a book-publisher. He was graduated at Harvard in 1816, was professor of the Latin and Greek languages and literature in Bowdoin from 1820 till 1824, and from 1824 till 1839 occupied the chair of rhetoric and oratory in the same institution. In the latter year he resigned to become principal of the Massachusetts state normal school, which had been just founded at Lexington, and he held this office until his death. Professor Newman was the author of "A Practical System of Rhetoric, or the Principles and Practice of Style, with Examples," of which 50 or 60 editions were published in the United States (Portland, 1829; 6th ed., London, England, 1846); "Elements of Political Economy" (Andover, 1835) ; and "The Southern Eclectic Reader, Parts I., II., and III."
