Willard Francis MALLALIEU bio. c. 1884

From an undated clipping in my greatgrandmother's scrapbook, prob. 1884, prob. from Western Christian Advocate, headed "Our New Bishops." If anyone would like a photocopy, please e-mail me with snail mail address.

WILLARD FRANCIS MALLALIEU was born in Sutton, Mass. in 1828, and is of Huguenot descent. He was converted at the age of 12, having signified his desire to seek Christ at the first Methodist meeting he ever attended, held in the kitchen of a widow lady. After a preparatory training he entered the Wesleyan University at Middletown, Conn. where he graduated. He entered the New England Conference in 1858. Two years ago he was made presiding elder, the preceding 24 having been passed continuously in the pastorate. Bishop MALLALIEU has become favorably known to the Church outside of his conference through his able contributions to our literature and his platform addresses at Chautauqua and elsewhere. As a valued friend of Bishop GILBERT HAVEN, he was appointed to prepare the memorial of him for the General Conference of 1880. He was a member of the General Conference of 1872, returning in 1884 at the head of the delegation. He is a practical, wide-awake minister, makes a good speech in a way that assures you he could preach a better sermon, and will no doubt make an able and useful bishop.
