Drummond, Henry, 1786-1860, English banker, known particularly as one of the founders of the Catholic Apostolic Church. Beginning in 1826, he gathered annually for five years, at his home in Surrey, a group of laity and clergy to examine the prophecies in the Scriptures. Out of these meetings grew the organization of the Catholic Apostolic Church under Edward Irving. Drummond became an apostle of the church in 1832. From 1847 until his death, he was a member of Parliament.
Drummond, Henry, 1851-97, Scottish clergyman and author, educated at the Univ. of Edinburgh. He was a minister of the Free Church and from 1877 a lecturer on science in Free Church College, Glasgow. Deeply interested in the reconciliation of science and religion, he wrote Natural Law in the Spiritual World (1883). After travels in Africa he published Tropical Africa (1888), and The Ascent of Man is a collection of the Lowell Lectures he delivered in Boston in 1893. A sermon, The Greatest Thing in the World (1890), has been reprinted many times.
