FOX, Thomas Bailey, clergyman, born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1808; died in Dorchester, Massachusetts, in 1876. He was graduated at Harvard in 1828, and at the Cambridge Divinity School in 1831, and became pastor of the first religious society of Newburyport, Massachusetts, where he remained until 1845. He then removed to Boston, where he gathered a congregation, and established a Church in Indiana Place, which was soon afterward merged into the Church of the Disciples, to which it transferred its house of worship, He began to write for the press while yet an undergraduate, and was for several years a regular correspondent of the "Christian Inquirer," of New York. He was for three years the editor of the "Christian Register" in Boston, and for a much longer period an assistant editor and contributor to the "Christian Examiner," of which he was for six years proprietor, and much of the time actually, though not nominally, the editor. He was for many years editor of the " Boston Transcript," and furnished not only articles on to tidbits of the day, but many on subjects of enduring interest, together with numerous book notices and biographical sketches. His first book was a "Sketch of the Reformation," which was republished in England with some worthless alterations. His other publications were "The Ministry of Jesus" (Boston, 1837); "The Sunday School Prayer book" (1838); "Hints for Sunday School Teachers" (1840); "Allegories and Christian Lessons for Children" (1845); "The Acts of the Apostles" (184(;); and "The School HymnBook, for Normal, High, and Grammar Schools" (1850).
