This picture is of Edward Hitchcock (1793-1864). The photographer is "Langill" of Hanover, New Hampshire. Mr. Hitchcock was a man of many talents. He served as Headmaster of Deerfield Academy, as minister of a church in Conway, Massachusetts, as state geologist for Massachusetts, and was a teacher and the President of Amherst College. He did not find his strong interests in both religion and in science to be a problem.
