Alfred Hutchins

( fl. 1885). Pioneer minister and conference administrator. For some five years prior to joining the Adventists in 1852, he had been a Freewill Baptist minister. He was ordained together with J. N. Andrews in 1853 and was one of the leaders of Seventh-day Adventist work in Vermont throughout most of the rest of his life. Some have called him the “father of the Vermont Conference.” For a time he was chaplain at Battle Creek Sanitarium. He also preached in Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and throughout New England and eastern Canada. His name appears for the last time in the directory of 1894.
