Richard Green Parker
Born in Boston, he was the son of Episcopal clergyman Samuel Parker, who was appointed bishop of Massachusetts toward the end of his life, but never served in that capacity. Richard Green Parker graduated from Harvard in 1817. His subsequent life was devoted to education, chiefly in New England. He was not only a thorough practical teacher in grammar schools, and a private school of his own, but was also a voluminous author of textbooks.
