Daniel Pratt (1809-1887) was born in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and died in Boston, Massachusetts. He was an editor, author, and orator known as the "Great American Traveller." Pratt claimed to have walked 200,000 miles, visiting twenty-seven states and sixteen Native American tribes. His eccentric personality and lecturing style made him beloved among the students of New England colleges, which he toured annually. In his later years he became consumed by the delusion that he had been elected President of the United States but had been denied the office. There is no record of Pratt studying with Mary Baker Eddy or uniting with the Church of Christ (Scientist).
