He was engaged in literary work while in New Haven, principally in connection with the revisions of Webster's dictionary. He was for several years secretary of the New Haven Colonial Historical Society, for which he prepared several papers of much value."2

William Henry Goodrich1
Transcribed from Case: "graduated at Yale in 1843, and at the Theological Department in 1847, and was immediately called to the tutorship in the college. After several months' travel in Europe, he was ordained pastor of the First Congregational Church in Bristol, Conn., in 1850, where he remained until 1854, when he resigned and accepted the pastorate charge of the Presbyterian Church in Binghamton, N.Y; in 1858, he left there and became pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Cleveland, O., where he remained until his death. In 1872, ill-health compelled him to rest, and he went to Europe, and died at Lausanne, Switzerland, July 11, 1874.
He was distinguished by a character of remarkable symmetry; to rare natural endowments were added a broad culture and rich, scholarly attainments; his quick sympathy, geniality, and fine sense of humor, combined with a peculiar tact, fitted him eminently for social life, and won the confidence of all with whom he came in contact. As a preacher he was distinctively spiritual and practical. "His sermons were models of finished composition, symmetrical, and complete, and their delivery faultless." But it was as a pastor that he was preeminent. His power of organization and development were shown in the remarkable growth of the churches under his care; and in his more personal relation to his people, his devotion found response in the exceptional confidence and affection of the whole church."4
