Moses Waddell

WADDELL, Moses, clergyman, born in Rowan county, North Carolina, 29 July, 1770; died in Athens, Georgia, 21 July, 1840. His father, William, emigrated from the vicinity of Belfast, Ireland, about 1764, settling in Charleston, South Carolina, and subsequently in North Carolina. Moses taught to obtain means to enter college, was graduated at Hampden Sidney in 1791, and ordained to the ministry of the Presbyterian church, and subsequently taught in South Carolina. He established a classical school in Willington, South Carolina in 1804, where among his pupils were Hugh S. Legare, John C. Calhoun, and James L. Petigru. In 1819-'29 he was president of the University of Georgia. The College of South Carolina gave him the degree of D. D. in 1807. As an instructor of youth, Dr. Waddell was one of the most popular and successful men of his day. Alexander H. Stephens says of him: " In his insight into the character of boys, the constitution of their minds, their capacities and aptitudes, and in drawing out and developing their faculties by proper training, discipline, and government, he had few, if any, superiors in the United States." He published " Memoirs of Miss Catherine Elizabeth Smelt" (Augusta, Georgia, 1819).--His first wife, CATHERINE, was a sister of John C. Calhoun, and his second wife was Elizabeth W. Pleasants, of Virginia.--Their son, James Pleasants, educator, born in Willington, South Carolina, 5 January, 1801; died in Athens, Georgia, 28 May, 1867, was graduated at the University of Georgia in 1822, became principal of Richmond academy, taught belles-lettres and oratory in the University of Georgia in 1836-'40, and at the same time filled the chairs of Latin and Greek, which he held till 1856.--Another son, John Newton, educator, born in Willington, South Carolina, 2 April, 1812, was graduated at the University of Georgia in 1829, entered the ministry of the Presbyterian church in 1841, was professor of Latin and Greek in the University of Mississippi in 1848-'57, and from the latter date till 1860 occupied a similar chair in La Grange college, Tennessee He was then president of that institution till 1862, when, the town being occupied by the National army, the college was disbanded, and he became general superintendent of Presbyterian missions in the Western Confederate army, and was chiefly instrumental in founding the asylum for the orphans of Confederate soldiers in Tuskegee, Alabama In 1865-'74 he was chancellor of the University of Mississippi, and in 1879-'88 he occupied the same post in the Southwestern Presbyterian university, Clarksville, Tennessee The University of Nashville gave him the degree of D.D. in 1851, and the University of Georgia that of LL.D. in 1873. Since 1874 he has been secretary of the board of ministerial education of the Southern Presbyterian church.
