Biographical Sketch of Carey Elmore Morgan

Text from Moore, W. T. (editor), The New Living Pulpit of the Christian Church: A Series of Discourses, Doctrinal and Practical, by Representative Men among the Disciples of Christ, St. Louis: Christian Board of Publication, 1918. Page 113. This online edition 1998, James L. McMillan.

Born: Johnson County, Indiana, August 21, 1860.Died: Nashville, Tennessee, May 10, 1925.

Carey E. Morgan can and does do nearly everything well. In addition to fulfilling the duties of an important pastorate, he is more or less associated with many of the enterprises of the Disciples, as the following record shows: Carey Elmore Morgan, born in Johnson County, Indiana, August 21, 1860. Educated in a country school, in the high school at Indianapolis, and at Butler College, getting the A.B. degree from that institution in 1883, and the degree of M.A. from the same institution in 1885. Married Miss Ella May Dailey October 11, 1883. Three children. Two sons, Carey and Walter D., both of New York City. One daughter, Ruth, now Mrs. Fielding G. Gordon, of Nashville, Tennessee. Went to first appointment to preach New Year's Day, 1886. Located shortly afterwards as minister of the churches at Arcadia and Atlanta, Indiana. Began work in Wabash, Indiana, in 1887. Went to Portland Avenue Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1894. Went to the Seventh Street Church, Richmond, Virginia, in 1899. To Paris, Kentucky, in 1903. Began his ministry with the Vine Street Christian Church, Nashville, Tennessee, January 1, 1912. This is the greatest work of his life. A curator of Transylvania University since 1904. Vice-president of the Christian Unity Commission of the Disciples of Christ since its organization. Member of the Advisory Board for the National Society for Broader Education. Trustee of the American-Christian Missionary Society since the Buffalo Convention. President of the American Christian Missionary Society, 1914-15. Has spoken often at the International Convention of the church. Has been actively related to all the missionary enterprises of the brotherhood. Has traveled and studied abroad. Notwithstanding his activities in many fields of labor he has never written a book, nor edited a paper, so far as his record gives. Perhaps his most useful labors have been in pastoral work. He is a wise, conservative, and popular pastor. He has some gifts as an evangelist though his uncertain health has prevented him from undertaking very much work in the evangelistic field. He is eminently suited for church work and adheres faithfully to its demands. As a speaker, his words are as clear as sunlight, and as warm as sunshine. His arguments are generally logically set forth, but these are re-enforced with a heart power which is almost irresistible.

From Carey's findagrave.com Memorial ID 132558428 by James McMillan: "Stone-Campbell Movement (Christian Church) minister in Indiana, Minnesota, Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. Active on national level with the American Christian Missionary Society."

"From John T. Brown, Churches of Christ, page 571:"

"Born near Franklin, Johnson county, Indiana, August 21, 1860. When he was twenty years of age, after teaching his old home district school for two years, he went to Butler College, where he took his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1883, and the degree of Master of Arts in 1885. Superintendent of Schools, Brownsburg, Ind., 1883-85. Minister of churches at Arcadia and Atlanta, Ind., 1886-87; Wabash, Ind., 1887-1894; Portland Avenue Church, Minneapolis, 1894-1899 ; Seventh Street Church, Richmond, Va., 1899-1903; Paris, Ky., 1903 "

"Morgan was still in Paris, Kentucky, in 1911. Based on his 1910 travels abroad, he prepared a series of "stereoptican lectures" that included over 300 images."

As early as 1916, the title "Dr." appears with his name, probably indicating he received an honorary doctorate.
