a Presbyterian minister, was born at Mendham, N.J., March 24, 1805. He graduated at Princeton College in 1822; spent about four years teaching near Fredericksburg, Virginia, was licensed to preach in the spring of 1828 by the Presbytery of New York; and in 1830 appointed to the mathematical professorship in the college of Princeton, where he labored till his death, November 20, 1845. Professor Dod published several articles in the Biblical Repertory, one of which, on "Transcendentalism," attracted great attention, and was printed in a separate pamphlet. He was a man of very great ability as a writer and debater, and was very popular as a professor among his pupils. His sermons dealt with principles and strove to convince the understanding and rule the convictions. See Index to Princeton Rev. 1825-1868.
