Oil portrait of Jonathan Blanchard around age 25.
Jonathan Blanchard was a pastor, educator, and a social reformer.  He was a combatant for abolition for over thirty years. Though connected with many figures of historical note, his strong character and unflinching efforts for equality and reform put him at odds with countless individuals, causing one to write that he was “too outspoken to be looked upon by the majority of the Church with cordial sympathy.” One of his biographers noted that he was a “minority of one.”
