John Henry Livingston
Rev. Dr. John Henry Livingston (1746-1825) was a New York City preacher and theologian. He graduated from Yale College in 1762 and attended the University of Utrecht, receiving the degree of Doctor of Divinity in 1770. At that time, he became the pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church in the City of New York. He left New York City during the American Revolution, but returned in 1783 and went on to become the President of Queens College, now Rutgers University. He was also a professor of didactic theology at the Theological Seminary of the Reformed Church in America from 1784 to 1825.
John Henry Livingston was trustee of the New York Society Library from 1798 to 1799.
