Early Evangelicalism

Eleazar Wheelock

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Eleazar Wheelock's A Plain and Faithful Narrative of the Original Design, Rise, Progress and Present State of the Indian Charity-School at Lebanon, in Connecticut (1763). Wheelock was a noted evangelist during the Great Awakening and the founder of Dartmouth College. He worked hard to raise funds for the education of Native Americans, parading his prized student Samson Occom in order to generate money for the Moor's Indian Charity School. In the late 1760s, Wheelock turned his attention to establishing a new college that would train white missionaries separately from Native Americans. Thus, Dartmouth College was born. It relocated from Lebanon, Connecticut, to Hanover, New Hampshire, in 1770.
