Biographical and Genealogical History of Morris County New Jersey. Illustrated. Vol. I., Lewis Publishing Company, New York and Chicago, 1899
The youngest son of Augustus W. CUTLER, was born in the old home, March 24, 1861, and was educated in the high school of Morristown, under private instruction and in Rutgers College, in which institution he was graduated with high honors in the class of 1883. Feeling that his time and energies should be devoted to the uplifting of his fellow men, he prepared for the work of the ministry in the Union Theological Seminary, and was graduated in 1886. The same year his alma mater conferred upon him the degree of Master of Arts. Licensed to preach by the presbytery of Morris and Orange, in 1886, he was installed as pastor of the first Woodhaven (Brooklyn) Presbyterian Church, and occupied that pulpit until 1894, when he resigned and took up the study of law in New York University Law School. He is now engaged in practicing law and in managing the estate left by his father. His father's death made it necessary for him to abandon regular church work for a time, in order that he might look after the interests of the property, and his law studies were pursued with the idea of being broadened for future ministerial labors, as well as fitted for the conduct of his business interests. His work in the church was very successful. He was instrumental in the erection of two church edifices while in Brooklyn, and yet he preaches almost every Sunday in different pulpits, while in the work of the Young Men's Christian Association he is very active and influential. In politics he is also prominent, supporting the Democracy, and is a forceful, logical, entertaining and convincing political speaker.
