Rev. H. D. Maxwell

The present pastor of the church, Rev. Mr. Maxwell, was born at Moore's Mills, N. B., thirty-two years ago. He received his earlier education in the public schools of his native town. He entered the Divinity School at Tufts College in September, 1889, and graduated in the class of 1893. During the summer of 1892 Mr. Maxwell preached at Leeds Centre and Keene's Corner, Me., and in the summer of 1893 he preached at Addison, Harrington, and Cherryfield, Me., which was one of Rev. L. M. Powers' old summer circuits. In the fall of 1893 he received calls to Universalist churches in New Britain, Conn., and Hyannis, but declined both.

In January, 1894, Mr. Maxwell accepted a call to the pastorate of the Universalist Church in Brattleboro, Vt., where he remained until 1899. He also had charge of the Universalist Churches at Vernon and Guilford, Vt., during the five years. In 1896 he received a call from the Universalist Church in Brookline, but declined it. In February, 1897, he was married to Miss Sara Love, of St. Stephen, N. B., and they have several children.

Rev. Mr. Maxwell is one of Somerville's ablest preachers, his sermons giving evidence of profound thought. He possesses, also, in a marked degree the orator's power in delivery. In his pastoral work he is also highly esteemed.
