Chambers, Robert Daniel, Am

Chambers, Robert Daniel, A.M.

a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Martinsburg, Berkeley Co., Va., Jan. 4,1823. He received a private preparation for college, but his father's resources being too limited to assist him further, he was apprenticed to a printer in his native town, and, while thus employed, improved every available opportunity for extending his knowledge. He was soon after converted, and in 1845 entered the East Baltimore Conference; in 1859, became professor in Irving Female College; in 1864, president of Emory Female College, of which he was the founder, and died in Carlisle, Pa., Sept. 8, 1864. Mr. Chambers was conscientious, intensely patriotic, a bold, fierce denouncer of evil; possessed an iron will and deep piety. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1865, p. 254.
