A Request for a List of Presbyterian Presidents

I have been asked to post the names of the Presbyterian Presidents. This list is taken from They Seek A Country by Gaius Jackson Slosser. This book was purchased on ebay. Here are the Presidents he listed::

Andrew Jackson
James Buchanan
Woodrow Wilson
Grover Cleveland
Benjamin Harrison
Dwight David Eisenhower

In his book Mr. Slosser also has a “Who’s Who.” Here are a few of the names I recognized:

Jane Addams
Alexander Graham Bell
Andrew Carnegie (Never an active member)
Robert Dollar
John Hay
Cyrus Hall McCormick
Andrew Mellon
Benjamin Rush
Henry van Dyke
George Westinghouse

In the appendix there is also a list of the “educational institutions in the United States and foreign lands also theological seminaries in the United States related to American presbyterians.” A total of 124 schools in various categories are listed.

The book was published in 1955.

  1. Hello Wayne!
    I have been meaning to post this link but have been a bit busy. Robert Dollar was born about 4 miles from where we live.
