In 1830 and 1831, Elliott served as the “Acting Principal” of Washington College in Washington, Pennsylvania. His inaugural address outlined what he believed to be “the leading object of education” and concluded with these words: “Let the aspirations of our hearts, then, ascend daily to God on behalf of this seminary of learning, that it may be a nursery from which multitudes of intelligent and well-taught youth may spring up, and go forth to bless their country and the world” (pp. 3, 11).
