In August, 1833, he established, with his brother, a Collegiate and Commercial School in Wooster Square, in New Haven, which he conducted for about twelve years. After an interval of leisure he established another classical and scientific school in this city, which he maintained for over twenty-five years. About the year 1875 he removed to Northampton, but in 1880 returned to New Haven, where he died May 9, 1881, of a disease of the kidneys, after five months' illness. He was twice married, and by his second marriage had a son and a daughter. His son was drowned in 1869, while a member of the Sophomore Class of Yale. His wife and daughter survived him.
