Encyclopedia > Samuel Doak

Samuel Doak (1749-1830) was an American Presbyterian clergyman and educator, a pioneer in the movement for the abolition of slavery.


He was born in Augusta County, Virginia, graduated at Princeton in 1775, studied theology, and was licensed to preach in 1777. He then migrated to the Holston valley, where he established the New Bethel Presbyterian Church (Piney Flats, Tennessee). He later moved to Salem, Tennessee, where he established an academy which grew into Washington College, of which he was president from 1795 to 1818. In 1818, he removed to Bethel, Tennessee, where he helped to establish the Tusculum Academy, which in 1844 became Tusculum College. He was generally known as "the Presbyterian Bishop." After becoming convinced of the iniquity of slavery, he freed his own slaves in 1818. Afterwards, for the rest of his life, advocated immediate abolition. He was referred to as being "the apostle of learning and religion in the West." Augusta County is a county located in the state of Virginia. ...
