Atwater Jeremiah, D.D., a Congregational minister, was born at New Haven in 1774; graduated at Yale College in 1793; was tutor in that college from 1795 to 1799; president of Middlebury College from 1800 to 1809; and president of Dickinson College, Carlisle, from 1810 to 1818. From that period he lived in retirement until his death, July 29th, 1858. Dr. Atwater was a man of great reading, and of a retentive memory, especially of historical events, and the lives and characters of men he had known, but he had no fondness for writing, and has left, it is believed, but few literary remains. — Am.
