Apollos Hale

Apollos Hale(1807–1898)[1] was a Methodist Episcopal preacher in New England. He joined the Millerites and contributed significantly as a lecturer, a writer, and co-designer of the widely disseminated "1843 chart". Following the Great Disappointment, he adopted the shut-door doctrine at first, along with Joseph Turner. Later he abandoned this interpretation.


Hale began his work as a Methodist Episcopal minister in Charleston and Medford, Massachusetts,[2] in 1833.[3] He married Rebecca Wait in December, 1836.[4] He left the Methodist Episcopal ministry in 1842.[5]

Hale spent the last years of his life in Washington, D.C., where he died.[6]


Apollos Hale was instrumental in designing and presenting the "1843 chart" that was used extensively by Millerite lecturers.[7] Hale also served as an associate editor for the Signs of the Times, and later when it became the Advent Herald, he continued in the same responsibility.[8] He also authored the first three chapters of William Miller's Memoirs.[9]

In January, 1845, Hale and Joseph Turner published an interpretation of what had happened on October 22, 1844 in which they articulated what became known as the shut-door doctrine.[10] This was a minority view among the Millerites following the Great Disappointment, and Hale eventually abandoned the shut-door view and joined the majority group.[11]
