Henry Martyn Scudder

Henry Martyn Scudder (1822-95) was an American missionary and minister. He was born at Panditeripo, Ceylon, the son of the Rev. John Scudder, a missionary of the American Board, later of the Dutch Reformed Board. He was among the Scudders in India who devoted more than 1,100 combined years to Christian mission service by 42 members of 4 generations of the family.

He was graduated at the University of the City of New York in 1840 and Union Theological Seminary in 1843. The following year he went as missionary to Madura, India, and in 1846 to Madras. In 1850 he founded the mission at Arcot for the board of the Dutch Reformed Church. In 1864, his health failing in the climate of India, he returned to the United States and engaged in pastoral work for nearly 20 years. From 1887 to 1889 he was in the mission field in Japan. He published a number of books in the Sanskrit, Tamil, and Telugu languages.
