When only nineteen years of age he was graduated from what is now Princeton University, with the highest honor of his class. After two years of further study and travel abroad he entered Princeton Seminary, graduating in the class of 1876. In 1878 he was appointed instructor, and in 1879 installed as professor of New Testament Exegesis and Literature at Western Theological Seminary, Allegheny. In 1887 he received and accepted, the appointment to the Charles Hodge Chair of Didactic and Polemic Theology at Princeton Seminary; and for thirty-three years, from 1887 to the time of his death in 1921, he served Princeton Seminary and the Presbyterian Church U.
