Clergyman, writer, hymn author. He was a noted 19th century American clergyman, pastoring Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church in Baltimore, Maryland, from 1887 to 1900 and then Brick Presbyterian Church in New York City. A graduate of Syracuse University in New York, he was described by a 1910 biographer as a brilliant speaker, "with a marvelous personal magnetism which appealed to all classes of people, and the influence of which became in a sense national". He was honored by a Doctor of Divinity degree from Syracuse University in 1896.
His collected sermons and newspaper articles were published in 1902 as "Thoughts for Every-Day Living". He authored the familiar hymn, "This is My Father's World", among others.
