Nathaniel Kendrick (1777-1848) distinguished himself as a Baptist pastor, supporter of missions and theological education in the Northeastern United States, particularly New York and Vermont. Alongside his pastoral duties, he also served as professor of theology and later president of the school of theological education which years later would bear the name, Colgate University. Kendrick's missionary travels and support of organized mission efforts contributed in significant ways to the spread of the Baptist movement through his region and into Canada. --Ben Leslie
