Name of creator
The Reverend Charles DeWolfe was a Methodist minister, ordained at City Road Chapel, 14 September 1838, following his studies at Theological Institute at Huxton, England (1836-1838). He immediately returned to Canada, where he was received into the Eastern British America Conference. Between 1838 and 1848, he served in Yarmouth, Halifax, Horton, Windsor and Charlottetown.
In 1843, Charles DeWolfe was an agent at Mount Allison Academy. At Mount Allison College he was Professor of Theology and Hebrew Language, 1864-1868, and Professor of Theology and Moral Science, 1869-1870. He also served on the Mount Allison Board of Trustees and Governors, 1864-1870.
