About The Albert Baker Fund
Our mission is to serve the Cause of Christian Science and humanity by providing resources for the education and development of Christian Scientists.
Who is Albert Baker?
Albert Baker was Mary Baker Eddy’s beloved older brother who took a tender interest in her education and tutored her in Latin and Greek. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1834 and immediately joined the law office of Franklin Pierce, who would later become the 14th president of the United States. In 1839, Albert was elected to the New Hampshire State Legislature where he served until his passing in 1841.
We are honored to have our Fund associated with Albert’s fine values of scholarship and the important role that education plays in the growth of the individual. The Albert Baker Fund hopes to nurture the educational aspirations of today’s Christian Science students in much the same way that Albert encouraged and supported his sister Mary.
