"Professor Chaplin is a native of the state of Michigan, his birth having occurred in Fowlerville, Livingston county, on the 30th of April, 1852. He acquired his education in Adrian College, spent six years in that institution of learning, and graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1883. Eight years previous to that time Professor Chaplin was married, in 1875, to Miss Emma Strobridge, of Lapeer, Michigan, and they attended college together. After their marriage, being an ordained minister of the Methodist Protestant church, he preached in that denomination for two years, but, liking the republican form of government of the Congregational church, became identified with that denomination in 1886, and accepted a Congregational pastorate. In 1889 he came to Washington, accepting the pastorate of the First Congregational church of Olympia.
.......To the Professor and his wife have been born five children. The eldest daughter, Grace R., a most interesting and intelligent young lady, died recently at the age of nineteen years. One son, Emery S., is both a student in the University and the editor of a monthly magazine, called the College Independent. The other children are Ethel T., Gurnsey K. and Winthrop L. They are all Congregationalists in religious faith except Gurnsey, who is a Methodist...."
