Pease, Calvin

Pease, Calvin D.D., an eminent Presbyterian minister (O. S.), was born in Canaan, Conn., Aug, 12, 1813. He graduated at the University of Vermont in 1838, became a teacher in Montpelier, and professor of Greek and Latin in the University of Vermont in 1842. He held this post until 1855, when he was ordained to the ministry, and appointed president of the university. In 1861 he became pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Rochester, N.Y., and died on a visit to Burlington, Sept. 17, 1863. His scholarly culture was wide, yet thorough; and both in the university and in his parish he measured fully up to the demands of duty. He published several Sermons, and contributed a number of articles to the Bibliotheca Sacra. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1864. p. 188; Appleton's Annual Cyclop. 1863, p. 737; Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, vol. ii, s.v.
