Edwin Hubbell Chapin was born in Union Village, Washington County, New York. He attended a seminary at Birmington, Vermont. In 1838 he was ordained as pastor. In 1940 he moved to Charlestown, Massachusetts to be pastor of the School Street Society in Boston. In 1848 he moved to New York City to be pastor of the Fourth Universalist Society. He remained there for eighteen years, and wrote several religious works, including the Crown of Thorns, Discourses on the Lord's Prayer, Characters of the Gospel, Moral Aspects of City Life, and Humanity in the City. He was one of the pastors in the "Broad Church Movement". He died in 1880, and in 1894 the Chapin Memorial Church at Oneonta, New York was dedicated to him.
