William Jewett Tucker

1839-1926. Congregational clergyman and educator. Educated at Dartmouth College and Andover Theological Seminary, he pastored churches in New Hampshire and New York City before teaching at Andover (1879-93). He was also associate editor of Andover Review (1884-93). Influenced by Horace Bushnell,* he asserted that only humane theology, or “progressive orthodoxy,” would improve society. Because of this he founded in 1881 Andover House in Boston, patterned after Toynbee Hall. He was tried with others for heresy, but was acquitted. From 1893 until his retirement in 1909 Tucker was president of Dartmouth. Not a prolific writer, he best expressed his thinking in the autobiographical My Generation (1919), in which he praised the growth of the Puritan conscience in America.
