Edwin Hubbell Chapin (1814-1880), was born in New York, to Beulah Hubbell and Alpheus Chapin. The Hubbells and the Chapins had emigrated from England in the mid-1600s and settled in Massachusetts and Connecticut. E. H. Chapin was a Universalist minister, author, lecturer, and social reformer, and was one of the most popular speakers in America from the 1840's until his death. He was revered for his eloquent tongue and passionate pleas for tolerance and justice. Instead of attending school, Chapin worked as an errand boy and wrote poems to amuse his friends. At age 13 he joined a neighbourhood drama club, where he recited poetry, sang songs, and played comic roles with relish. Amongst his works are: Might and Right (1846), Humanity in the City (1854), The American Idea, and What Grows Out of it (1854), Moral Aspects of City Life (1856), A Discourse on Shameful Life (1859), Discourses on the Beatitudes (1860), Living Words (1861) and The Crown of Thorns: A Token for the Sorrowing (1860).
