McClintock, John, 1814–70, American Methodist Episcopal clergyman and educator, b. Philadelphia. From 1836 to 1848 he taught at Dickinson College, resigning to edit (1848–56) the Methodist Quarterly Review. He preached in New York City (1857–60), and at the American Chapel in Paris (1860–64). He served (1867–70) as first president of Drew Theological Seminary. With James Strong, McClintock began in 1853 the noted Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature (10 vol., 1867–81), three volumes of which were published before his death.
