Biography of Alexander Wodrow

Alexander Wodrow (d 1706), eldest son of James, was an alumnus of the University and briefly a second Professor of Divinity there, 1705 to 1706.

Wodrow studied Theology under his father at the University. He was licensed to preach in 1701 and became a minister in Glasgow. In October 1705, when it became apparent that his father was suffering from the infirmities of old age and was unable to fulfill all his duties as Professor of Divinity, Alexander was appointed as a second Professor. He died in March of the following year, leaving his father to continue teaching alone until his own death in 1707.
