Currie, Robert O., D.D.

a (Dutch) Reformed minister, was born of Scotch parentage, in 1806. He graduated from Rutgers College in 1829, and from New Brunswick Theological Seminary in 1834. His only settlement as a pastor was at New Utrecht, L.I., from 1835 to 1866, when he died. His mind was remarkable for clearness, precision, and strength; his learning was varied, accurate, and thorough. He was an excellent classical and Biblical scholar. As a preacher, he was instructive, direct, fervid, and strong. He wrote much for the religious periodical press. His only volume is a well-written memoir of his former pastor and friend, the Reverend Richard Sluyter. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref. Church in America, s.v. (W.J.R.T.)
