H. LOUIS BAUGHER, D. D., Franklin professor of the Greek language and literature in Pennsylvania College, Gettysburg, was born in that place August 6, 1840, son of Henry L. Baugher, D. D., and Clara Mary (Brooks) Baugher. Henry L. Baugher was born in Adams County, Penn., July 19, 1804; was prepared for college by Rev. David McConaughy, of Gettysburg, and was graduated from Dickinson College, Carlisle, in 1826. In 1832 he became a professor in Pennsylvania College, and
in 1850 was chosen president of that college. (An extended sketch of him will be found in the college records.) His death occurred April 14, 1868, the father of five children, who lived to adult age, of whom our subject is next to the youngest. H. Louis Baugher was reared in Gettysburg and educated in Pennsylvania College, from which he was graduated in 1857. He subsequently was graduated in theology in the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, and spent a year in the seminary at Andover, Mass. He served as co-pastor of a church at
Wheeling, W. Va., during the year 1863-64, and from 1864 to 1867 was pastor of a church at Norristown, Penn. A portion of the year 1867-68 he passed in Europe, and the latter year served as pastor of a church at Indianapolis, Ind. From 1869 to 1880 he was professor of Greek in Pennsylvania College, and served as pastor of a church at Omaha, Neb., during the year 1880-81. From 1869 to 1873 he also gave instruction in New Testament Exegesis in the Theological Seminary
at Gettysburg, and supplied the department of Systematic Theology throughout the year 1883-84. In 1880 he received the degree of D. D., conferred by his alma mater. In 1888 Dr. Baugher supplied the chair of Greek in Howard University, at Washington, D. C., and was elected to a professorship of political economy, etc., in that institution, but declined to accept his former position in Pennsylvania College, to which he was recalled in 1883. Since 1874 Dr. Baugher has been connected, as editor and commentator, with the Lutheran Publication Society, and since the convention at Atlanta, Ga., in 1878, has represented the Lutheran Church on the International Sunday-School Lesson Committee. April 8, 1872, Dr. Baugher was married to Miss Ida, daughter of William Smith, of York,
Penn., and to them one child, Bessie, has been born
