A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH BY HIS SON, REVEREND CHARLES E. CORWIN

The Reverend E. T. Corwin D.D. Litt.D., the discoverer and editor of the Ecclesiastical Records of the State of New York, was born in New York City on July 12, 1834. On his father's side he was descended from the Puritans of New England, while through his mother he was related to the Dutch founders of New Netherland.

Doctor Corwin's youth was passed in the metropolis, whose history he knew so well and in whose affairs he was so much interested. He was graduated in 1853 in the first class sent out by the College of the City of New York. In 1856 he was graduated from the Seminary of the Reformed Church at New Brunswick, New Jersey. After a year spent in special linguistic studies, he was ordained and was for six years, 1857-63, the pastor of the Reformed Church of Paramus, New Jersey. His chief pastorate, of twenty-five years, was spent at Millstone, New Jersey. In 1888 he became the rector of Hertzog Hall of the Reformed Church Seminary at New Brunswick, New Jersey. Seven years later he accepted a call from the Reformed Church of Greenport, New York. He served in this, his last pastorate, from 1895 to 1897. In the latter year he was sent by the General Synod of the Reformed church to Holland on a mission of historical exploration. The results of his discoveries in the archives of the Classis of Amsterdam and elsewhere are embodied in the Ecclesiastical Records of the State of New York. After his return to America he devoted himself entirely to literary work. He resided, first at New Brunswick, and, after the death of his wife, in 1905, with his son at North Branch, New Jersey. He died there, very suddenly, on June 22, 1914.

Doctor Corwin was born with a genius for historical research. As a boy it was his delight, when visiting in the country, to copy
