The Rev. Cornelius Stevenson Abbott, Jr., Vicar of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd for 36 years, and head of a Potomac camp for boys and young men near Scotland, Md., died at the camp Saturday, August 16, 1941. Although he had been warned by doctors of a heart ailment, friends said, Dr. Abbott had insisted on taking his annual trip to camp with "his boys". The son of a Belleville (N.J.) clergyman, he was educated at the Newark (N.J.) Academy, Columbia University and the General Theological Seminary in New York. After being consecrated as an Episcopal minister in 1894, he rode a mission circuit on a cow pony, cared for workers in a Maryland mill town, served as chaplain to the Bishop of Maine, and came to the Church of the Good Shepherd in 1905. He was one of the oldest clergymen in length of continued service in the Washington diocese. Dr. Abbott was a member, and for several years, chairman, of the diocese's Board of Examining Chaplains. He was active in the educational works of the diocese, serving on committees and winning national recognition as the author of published Sunday school courses.
