John N. Templeton (1804?-1851)

I have been working on a biography of John N. TEMPLETON (1804?-1851). John Newton Templeton graduated from Ohio University in 1828, among the first 10 African American college graduates in this country.

Among his activities in the Steel City:

See:
Perdreau, Connie. A Black History of Athens County and Ohio University. Athens, Ohio: Ohio University, 1988.
Ohio University. Board of Trustees. Minutes (October 1993) pp. 382-401. "Naming of Memorial Auditorium, Resolution 1993-1324".
Templeton, John Newton. The Claims of Liberia (Chillicothe, OH July 4,1829). Athens, OH : Maurice Press, 1980.

NB. Not to be confused with his younger brother, Benjamin Franklin TEMPLETON.  Benjamin Franklin Templeton graduated from Lane Theological Seminary in 1838.
