Charles Bricket Haddock was born on June 20, 1796 in Franklin, New Hampshire. (His mother was a sister of Daniel Webster). He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1816 and from Andover Seminary in 1819. He returned to Dartmouth, where he was professor of rhetoric and belles lettres from 1819 until 1838, when he became professor of intellectual philosophy and political economy until 1854. He was chargé d'affaires for the United States in Portugal from 1850 until 1854. Except for his time in Portugal, Haddock served as a Congregationalist minister in Windsor, White River, Norwich, West Lebanon, and Quechee. He also represented Hanover for four years as a Whig in the New Hampshire legislature. There he introduced and carried the present common-school system of the state, and was the first school commissioner under that system. Haddock made anniversary orations, lectures, reports for fifteen years on education, sermons, and wrote on agriculture and rhetoric. He published a volume of addresses and other writings, including occasional sermons, in 1846, and was a contributor to the Bibliotheca Sacra, Biblical Repertory, and other periodicals. He died on January 15, 1861.
