Biographical Sketches of the Congregational Pastors of New England

The original manuscript of these biographies was compiled by Dr. Emerson Davis in the mid-19th century. It was presented to the Congregational Library by his widow in 1869, and proved so useful that it eventually began to deteriorate. In 1926, the board of directors commissioned two typewritten copies from Miss C. C. Noyes that were bound and have been in use by our researchers ever since.

Because it is such a rare and valuable resource for our researchers, particularly religous historians and genealogists, we have made it available online through the Internet Archive.  Simply click on the volume title to view the full text.
