Agnes Louise Lockwood (1867–1956)
Gift of the Stamford Baptist Church

The Reverend Lathrop began his pastorate at the Stamford Baptist Church in 1845, then located at Broad and Atlantic Streets, where he remained until his retirement in 1866. He was called “the silver-tongued orator” and was widely known for his abilities as a preacher and eloquence as a public speaker.

He was a close personal friend of Joseph Blachley Hoyt whose portrait is in this exhibit.

Agnes Lockwood was a native of Stamford and an art teacher in the public schools until her marriage in 1922 to Dr. Joseph M. Bishop.
