Frank Wakeley Gunsaulus, D.D., LL.D. (1856-1921), graduate of Ohio Wesleyan College at nineteen years of age, began an energetic, successful ministry as a church planter, pastor, lecturer, and author. At twenty-eight called to a church near Boston and became close friends with Phillips Brooks. Gunsaulus later became pastor of Brown Memorial Church and lecturer at Johns Hopkins University on "The Messages of the Great English Poets." At thirty-two he was called to Plymouth Church of Chicago; founded the Armour Institute; "a lecturer whose voice rang forth hundreds of times upon the American platform." He was later pastor of Central Church, Chicago. Gunsaulus was close friends with the poet and author Eugene Field; he was also a collector of rare books and manuscripts, making several striking discoveries.
