Samuel Cooper (1724-84), scholar and Congregational minister, was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Following in the footsteps
of his father, William Cooper, he was educated for the ministry and was graduated from Harvard in 1743. In the same year,
before his ordination took place, he was called to be assistant pastor of the Brattle Street Church in Boston. Four years
later he became sole incumbent and remained in the same pastorate to the end of his life.
