Judd, Sylvester, a Unitarian minister of some note, was born in Westhampton, Mass., July 23, 1813, and was educated at Yale College. He was of Orthodox parentage, but shortly after the completion of his collegiate studies he changed his religious opinions, and went to Cambridge Divinity School to prepare for ministerial duties in the Unitarian Church. He was called to Augusta, Maine, and there spent his life. He died in 1853, "at the very beginning of a course of high usefulness, of a life which seemed essential to the Church." Judd wrote several books having a moral end in view, and as a literary character enjoyed a good reputation for ability. See Life and Character of the Rev. S. Judd (Bost. 1854), p. 531; Christian Examiner, 1855, p. 63 sq.
