Rev. Cyrus Pitt Grosvenor was a major leader of the anti-Slavery Baptists in the pre-Civil War 19th century. He was an officer of the American Baptist Home Mission Society, and the American Anti-Slavery Society. He was part of Boston's first anti-slavery meeting in 1828. He was one of the founders of the New York Central College in McGrawville, Cortland County, New York. Cyrus served as the first college president of this institution in 1849-50, and was on its faculty for several years afterwards. It was the first college in the nation founded specifically to educate both black and white students, both men and women. Cyrus was an 1818 graduate of Dartmouth College, and also attended Princeton Theological Seminary 1821-22, and later received an LLD degree in 1867. (bio by: Frank Passic, Albion Historian)
