Theologian, educator. Calvin Ellis Stowe lost his father when he was still a boy and, to help his mother, he began working at a young age. He also taught himself enough that he enrolled at Bowdoin College, where he graduated in 1824. After spending the next year there as a teacher and librarian, he attended Andover Theological Seminary. After graduating, he became the editor for a Boston-based religious newspaper. He was then appointed a professor at Dartmouth College and married Eliza Tyler. Stowe was then given a professorship at the Lane Theological Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio; his wife died not long after moving there. It was in Cincinnati that he met Harriet Beecher, daughter of the Seminary's president Rev. Lyman Beecher. The two were married in 1836 and eventually had seven children together. In Ohio, Stowe also began his outspoken advocacy of improving public education, particularly in the more "frontier" states of what was then the west. He urged the state legislature to promote a state-wide system of public schools. He then took a professorship at Bowdoin College and, while living in Maine, his wife wrote her best-selling novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin." He continued teaching and writing before his retirement in 1864, and the family moved to Hartford, Connecticut. His books focus on the history of the Bible and its teachings as well as the teaching of religion.
