Rev. William DeLoss Love, Jr., was born in New Haven, Nov. 29, 1851, being the second son of Rev. Dr. Wm. DeLoss
Love. He was prepared for college in the Milwaukee Academy at Milwaukee, Wis., and graduated from Hamilton College
at Clinton, N. Y., in the class of 1873. His theological studies were pursued at Andover Seminary, his graduation
from that institution occurring in 1878. He was ordained at Lancaster, Mass., Sept. 18, 1878, and remained there
for three years. He then spent one year in foreign travel, visiting important centers of interest in the East.
After returning home he resided at Keene, N. H., for two years, occupying the position of private secretary to
Gov. S. W. Hale during his administration. In 1884, on account of an obstinate throat trouble, he engaged in commercial
enterprises. On the first of January, 1885, he resumed the work of the pastorate and was settled over the Pearl

two daughters by this marriage. Mr. Love is the chaplain of the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American
Revolution, and an interested member of the Connecticut Historical Society. His preaching and pastoral work in
Hartford have been eminently successful, and the church, under his leadership, has made decided progress. Mr. Love
is a man of superior culture and training, and his pulpit ministrations have entitled him to much recognition in
