      Biographical Note written by James Green, from the source cited below:

      Edward Henry Hall was born at Cincinnati, Ohio, April 16, 1831, the elder son of Rev. Edward Brooks Hall and Harriett (Ware) Hall, while the father was temporarily supplying the Unitarian pulpit at Cincinnati. He was fitted for college in the High School in Providence, while his father was settled there as pastor of the First Congregational Church. He entered Harvard College in 1847, sixteen years old, during the presidency of Edward Everett. He was graduated from college with the class of 1851, in the presidency of Jared Sparks; and from the Harvard Divinity School in 1855.

      Mr. Hall was ordained at Plymouth, Mass., January 5, 1859, where he remained as minister over the Unitarian Church for eight years, until July, 1867. During his ministry at Plymouth he was chaplain of the 44th Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer Militia in active service in the War of Secession. He was settled at Worcester, Mass., over the Second Parish (Unitarian), February 10, 1869, in his thirty-eighth year; and remained there as pastor for thirteen years. Being invited by the First Parish in Cambridge, Mass. (Unitarian), to become its minister, he was installed as pastor over this First Parish and Church on March 30, 1882, where he remained till his resignation was accepted, March 31, 1893. He was lecturer on the History of Christian Doctrine at the Harvard Divinity School for the year 1899-1900, and was given the degree of S.T.D. at Harvard in 1902.

      Mr. Hall wrote the following books: "Orthodoxy and Heresy in the Christian Church," 1874, while in Worcester; "Lessons on the Life of St. Paul," 1885, and "Discourses," 1893, while pastor at Cambridge; "Papias and his Contemporaries," 1899, and "Paul the Apostle," 1906, after retiring from the settled ministry.

      Mr. Hall belonged to many organizations other than churches, and among them are the following: The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Antiquarian Society, the American Unitarian Association, the 44th Massachusetts Regiment Association, the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the U.S.A., the Massachusetts Historical Society, the Massachusetts Reform Club, the Worcester Art Society, the Worcester Continentals, the Worcester School Committee, for several years. He died at his home, 14 Craigie Street, Cambridge, on Thursday, February 22, 1912, and was buried at Mt. Auburn, February 25, 1912.
