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.
