Biographical Information

Arthur Merrihew Adams was born on September 28, 1908, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Alexander Mackie Adams and his wife, Laura Merrihew Dickey Adams. He was the oldest of three children. He attended the University of Pennsylvania and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1931. From there, he proceeded to Princeton Seminary and received a Bachelor of Theology degree in 1934. In the same year, he was ordained by the United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America in the Philadelphia North Presbytery and began his first pastorate at Glading Memorial Presbyterian Church. He also was married to Margaret Baker in October of 1934. After serving at Glading for ten years, from 1934-1944, Adams became the pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Albany, New York. He was positioned there from 1944-1950, when he then moved to Central Presbyterian Church of Rochester, New York.

An obituary in Princeton Theological Seminary News states, “Under his leadership Central Church pioneered in migrant work, store-front ministry, service to underprivileged children, … and an annual religious arts festival that drew entries from all over the country. His ministry in Rochester extended beyond the membership of his own congregation to the many that heard him as preacher for more than a decade on the Central Church of the Air, the city’s oldest religious radio program, and as teacher of the lunch-hour Bible classes…”

After twenty-eight years in the pastorate, Adams came back to Princeton Theological Seminary in 1962, where he would stay until his retirement. He had been serving as a trustee at the Seminary for seven years already at that time. Adams was deeply influential in beginning and maintaining the field education and continuing education programs at the Seminary, where he was serving as a professor of Pastoral Theology and the Director of Field Education. In 1966, he became the Dean of Princeton Theological Seminary and he continued his service until September 1979. He retired only days before his passing on September 9, 1979.
