Savage, Thomas

Savage, Thomas a Presbyterian minister, was born in Boston, Mass., Sept. 2, 1794. He pursued his preparatory studies at Phillips Academy, in Andover; graduated with honor at Harvard University, Cambridge; and studied theology at the divinity school connected with that institution. In 1815 he accepted an invitation to become a private tutor in Louisiana, in the vicinity of Baton Rouge, where he continued to teach and preach for nearly seven years. In 1824 he returned to Boston. and on July 5, 1826, was installed pastor of the church in Bedford, N.H., which pastorate lasted forty years. He died May 8, 1866. Mr. Savage possessed a truly symmetrical character. His ministry was in conformity with such a character. He was a practical and impressive preacher, and an accurate scholar — excelling perhaps in the classics, but familiar with the best models of his native tongue. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1867, p. 196. (J.L.S.)
