History

The Reverend Edward Abbott began his ministry as a congregational pastor in Cambridge, Mass. and was later ordained by the Episcopal Church. He was rector of St. James Church in Cambridge from 1879 to 1906. In addition to his pastoral duties, he was editor of "The Congregationalist" (1869-1878) and "The Literary World" (1877-1888; 1895-1903). In 1899 the Episcopal Church elected him Missionary Bishop of Japan, a position he declined.
