Adoniram Judson (1788-1850), Protestant missionary; born in Malden, Mass. He graduated from Brown in 1807, taught for a year, studied at Andover Theological Seminary, was ordained in 1812 and went to Burma in that year as a Baptist missionary. He was married three times, in each case to women who were missionaries in their own right. Rev. Judson was accused and imprisoned as a spy during the Anglo-Burmese War (1824-26). He translated the Bible into Burmese and is credited with converting thousands to Christianity.  He died a few days after leaving Burma on a voyage for his health.
