Daniel Clark Eddy, 1823-1896

[Mentioned in Retrospection and Introspection, p. 15]

Daniel C. Eddy's first pastorate was in his native state of Massachusetts at Lowell. Under his leadership the church membership grew, and the edifice had to be enlarged. At this time he became active in the Know-Nothing Party, and when this party swept the state, he was borne into office and elected Speaker of the House. The next year he was chaplain of the State senate.

In 1856 Eddy accepted a call to the Harvard Street Church in Boston. Again the membership grew. A special feature here was his work with the firemen. He also inaugurated theater preaching.
