About Charles Russell Lowell, Sr.

Charles Russell Lowell, Sr. (1782 – 1861) was born in Boston, Massachusetts, became a Unitarian minister and abolitionist, was the half-brother of Francis Cabot Lowell, father of James Russell Lowell, and grandfather of Civil War General Charles Russell Lowell.

Lowell, Sr. attended The Roxbury Latin School and later Harvard College in 1800 where he studied law and then theology. After two years in Edinburgh, Scotland and one year on the Continent, Lowell was, from 1806 until his death, pastor of the West Congregational (Unitarian) Church of Boston, a charge in which Cyrus A. Bartol was associated with him after 1837. Almost alone, he spoke out from the pulpit against slavery to Boston’s elite.
