From Rossiter Johnson, Twentieth Century Biographical Dictionary of Notable Americans, (Boston: The Biographical Society, 1904), Vol. V:

"HASKELL, Thomas Nelson, educator, was born in Mina, New York, Jan. 20, 1826; son of Capt. George and Eliza (Knapp) Haskell; and grandson of Roger and Edith (Nelson) Haskell and of Alexander and Mary Knapp. His ancestor, Roger Haskell, emigrated from Wales about 1720. Capt. George Haskell removed from Middleborough, Mass., to Middlebury, Vt., and from New England to the Chautauqua Lakes, N.Y., and thence to Trumbull county, Ohio. Thomas taught school in 1842 at Warren, Ohio, and subsequently held several of the first teachers' institutes assembled in the state. He was principal of Wayne academy and of Sandusky high school, and was tutor at Oberlin college and at Miami university. At the latter he was a student on the Trumbull County scholarship and was graduated A.M. in 1851. He was graduated from the Union Theological Seminary, N.Y., in 1854, having spent the middle year of his theological course at Andover. He was pastor of a Presbyterian church at Washington, D.C., 1854-58, and was opposed to the secession of the synod of Virginia which met in Washington in 1857, to form a Southern proslavery assembly. He was a Congregational and Presbyterian pastor in Boston, Mass., 1858-66; was professor of logic, rhetoric, literature and æsthetics in the University of Wisconsin and conducted its female college, lecturing on ethics and evidences of Christianity. He was pastor of the New England church at Aurora, Illinois, 1868-73, and was elected president of the Congregational Association and trustee of Wheaton college. Assisted by his brother-in-law, the Rev. Jonathan Edwards of Massachusetts, he founded the first college in the Rocky mountain region at Colorado Springs in 1874, and was its chief representative and correspondent. He was chaplain of the Colorado senate, custodian of the state library, and did much to bring the territory into the Union as "The Centennial State." He was married in 1855 to Annie, youngest daughter of Justin Edwards, president of Andover theological seminary. The honorary degree of L.H.D. was conferred on him by Miami university in 1896. He is the author of: Volume of Sermons on Human and Divine Governments (1858); Soldier's Mission (1861); Life of Sir Henry Havelock (1861); Echoes of Inspired Ages (1874); Civil Ethics in the United States (1876); Domestic and Occasional Poems at Home and Abroad (1889); Young Konkaput, the King of Utes (1889); Women of the Bible (1892); Wives of our Presidents (1892) and A Dark Secret (1896); besides articles on civil and ethical subjects, including A Review of Redpath's Memories of Jefferson Davis."

From Memoirs of the Leonard, Thompson and Haskell Families, pg. 73:
"...moved from Chatauqua county, New York, to Bloomfield, Ohio. After being a pastor in Washington and Boston, Thomas was a professor in Colorado College, and has been called one of the founders of that institution. He was the author of a well-written and beautifully illustrated book of poems called "Kankaput," the name of an Indian Ute chief. This book contains a picture of Thomas Nelson Haskell -- showing him to have had a face of great spiritual beauty."

From Biography of Thomas Nelson Haskell, founder of Colorado College, posted on the
Colorado College Tutt Library site at: [http://www.coloradocollege.edu/Library/SpecialCollections/Manuscript/Hask ell.html]:
"Thomas Nelson Haskell was born on January 20, 1826 in Mina, Chatauqua county, New York, the youngest son of Captain George and Eliza Knapp Haskell. The Haskells moved to North Bloomfield, Ohio a year and a half later. Haskell attended school at Farmingon Academy. He became involved in education early, teaching school in Warren at the age of sixteen.

Haskell divided up his college career. He attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio from 1846 to 1847. From 1847 until March 1851 he was at Oberlin and then returned to Miami in March 1851 until he graduated in July of that year. His professional training followed much the same course. Haskell attended Union Theological Seminary, New York, during 1851 and 1852. The following year, 1852-1853, he was at Andover Theological Seminary, and then returned to Ohio to graduate in 1854.

In the meantime Thomas Nelson Haskell was involved in many other activities. He was principal at Wayne Academy, Ohio during the winters of 1849 and 1850. In 1851 he was principal of High School in Sandusky. Haskell also organized the first Teacher's Institutes ever held in Ohio in 1851-1852.

On April 5, 1854 Haskell was licensed to preach by the Congregational Association of New York and Brooklyn. This was followed by his ordination of February 7, 1855 by the Presbytery of the District of Columbia, Washington, D. C., as the first pastor of the Western Presbyterian Church in that city. Two months later he married Ann Eliza Edwards, the daughter of Justin Edwards, President of Andover. They later had four daughters: Florence Edwards, who died in infancy, another Florence Edwards, in whose memory Colorado College was founded, Mary Eliza, and Annie Nelson.

In many ways Thomas Nelson Haskell's professional career increasingly followed the pattern of his college days, with many changes of location and employment. He seemed to become more dissatisfied and frustrated by unfulfilled hopes and ambitions as time went on.

Haskell was at Western Presbyterian Church until he resigned on May 9, 1858 over the secession policy of the state of Virginia. He was then installed at the Maverick Congregational Church in East Boston and worked there until 1862 when he had to leave because of failing health. He was sent on a tour of Europe, Palestine and Egypt by the people of the church. Also in 1862 an attempt was made to persuade Haskell to become chaplain to a division of the Union Army, but being reluctant to leave his wife and young daughters, he declined. But in 1865 he was detailed by the United States Christian Commission to preach to the 17th Army Corps.

On returning from Europe Haskell became pastor at First Presbyterian Church, East Boston where he remained until 1867. In that year he became "Professor of Rhetoric, Literature, Aesthetics, and Political Economy" at the University of Wisconsin and conductor of its female college. The following year he went to the New England Congregational Church in Aurora, Illinois, where he remained until 1872.

In 1873 Haskell travelled west to Denver, Colorado for the sake of the health of his daughter Florence Edwards. She died later in the same year. In her memory, he proposed before the Congregational Association of Colorado to start the first college in the Rocky Mountain region, Colorado College. Haskell became the college's first financial officer and his brother-in-law, Jonathan Edwards, became the first instructor and executive officer. Thomas Nelson Haskell resigned from the Board of Trustees of Colorado College in 1875 over the proposal to sell college land in order to raise money for buildings, a proposal which Haskell opposed. He was also involved in a continuing dispute over money which he
claimed the college owed him. Later in that year Haskell was one of a group of 150 people who organized the Colorado Education Association.

From this time Haskell's life was marked by ill health which wouldn't allow him to take a job as a parish minister or full time teacher or administrator so he decided to devote himself to writing and to public affairs. The rest of his life was also marked by constant attempts to secure a government appointment or nomination for public office. His financial situation as he grew older was sometimes precarious, as a Colorado Senate bill for his relief, shows.

His literary output was great and consisted mainly of poetry and political articles and addresses. His interests were varied and he wrote about things as diverse as the mothers of the Presidents of the United States and bilingual education in Colorado. In answering a question concerning the number of poems he had written, he wryly answered, "Twice as many as published." He did have difficulty at times getting material published, particularly a manuscript entitled "The Dark Secret: A Romance of the Race Question" because many publishers thought the subject matter inappropriate.

In 1880 he went on the campaign trail for Garfield in Indiana and Ohio, but collapsed with a lung hemorrhage, from which he never fully recovered. Haskell tried repeatedly for a Senate candidacy and for appointments to various government commissions and bureaus. He also wished to receive diplomatic appointments in Turkey, Greece, Italy and Mexico. In all these attempts involving voluminous correspondence and time, he was unsuccessful.

In his later life, Thomas Nelson Haskell was involved in public affairs in Colorado. He was a representative at the National Conference on Charities and Corrections and became involved in many activities in this field. He was Colorado State Librarian for one term and Chaplain to the Colorado Senate. In 1896 he became corresponding secretary for the Denver McKinley Club. In that year he also received a PhD from Miami University in recognition of his services as professor and author. Though weak and ill, Haskell remained active until about a year before his death in 1906 at the age of eighty."
