History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Henry White was born in Durham, New York on June 19th, 1800. Born to a working-class farm family, White distinguished himself at Greencastle Academy, earning the attention of the American Education Society, which helped fund his college education at Union College. After earning a degree with high distinction, White completed graduate study in Theology at Princeton University, taking a degree in 1826. That year, White was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Columbia, and began doing so at the Allen Street Church in New York City. Two years later, in 1828, White became an active member of the group working to found Union Theological Seminary, and was appointed as Union's first Professor of Systematic Theology. For the remainder of his life, White served Union in this role, becoming a popular lecturer at Union, and remaining there despite being offered professorships at competing institutions. Henry White passed away on August 25, 1850.
