Arthur Wentworth Hamilton Eaton, M.A., D.C.L. (b. December 10, 1849, Kentville, Nova Scotia - d. July 11, 1937, Boston) was educated at Harvard, and ordained Protestant Episcopal priest in 1885. He wrote extensively on Nova Scotian topics.
"The attention I have given to biography, in this volume, has seemed to me necessary from the fact that the Church in Nova Scotia, which has been quite out of the range of great movements of thought, and great events, has had, notwithstanding, among its clergy and laity, a large number of distinguished men. Many of its early clergy were highly educated and able men, who at the Revolution left comfortable parishes in the older Colonies for raw missions in the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick wilds, and long and manfully did the Church's work on these new shores."
