Biography

William McCullock was a Scottish evangelical who oversaw a revival in his congregation at Cambuslang, near Glasgow, comparable to Jonathan Edwards' at Northampton. George Whitefield inspired both men, and together they demonstrate the Transatlantic nature of the Great Awakening. Occom and Whitaker preached at McCullock's church during their fundraising tour, and McCullock sent Wheelock boxes of books thereafter.
