Henry P. Tappan, D. D., LL. D., under whose auspices as its first President, the State University of Michigan, rose from an insignificant college into one of the first class universities of the country, was born at Rhinebeck, in the State of New York, on the 23rd of April, 1805. His family were among the earliest settlers on the North River, more particularly in Ulster county. His early studies were pursued partly at home, and partly at Greenfield Academy. In 1822, he entered the Sophomore Class at Union College, where lie graduated in 1825. He went to the Theological Seminary at Auburn in the same year, graduated there in 1827, and first entered upon the ministry as Assistant to the Rev. Dr. Van Vechten, in the Reformed Dutch Church at Schenectady. In 1828, he was settled as pastor over the Congregational Church at Pittsfield, Mass., but was obliged to leave there in 1831, on account of ill health. He went to the West Indies for a time, and on his return in 1832, was appointed Professor of Moral and Intellectual Philosophy in the University of the city of New York. He continued there until 1838, when he left together with the rest of the Faculty, owing to difficulties in the administration of the institution. For several years previous he devoted himself to the composition of works on philosophy and education, and to the management of a private seminary in the city of New York. In 1839, he published a "Review of Edward's Inquiry into the Freedom of the Will;" in 1840, "The Doctrine of the Will, determined by an Appeal to Consciousness;" in 1841, "The Doctrine of the Will, applied to Moral Agency and Responsibility;" in 1844, "Elements of Logic, together with an Introductory Review of Philosophy in general, and a Preliminary View of the Reason.'1 He delivered in 1848, the Semicentennial Address before the Philomathean Society of Union College, when he received the degree of D. D. In 1851, he published a treatise on " University Education," and in the same year visited Europe. After his return, he issued a work, entitled "A Step from the New World to the Old," in 1852.
