Son of John H. Hopkins, sometime Bishop of Vermont, Hopkins graduated from the University of Vermont (AB 1839, MA 1845). In New York City, he worked as a reporter, intending to prepare for a law career. Instead, he entered the General Theological Seminary, where he graduated in 1850. He then became the seminary’s first music teacher (1855-57), and editor of the Church Journal (1853-68). Hopkins also served as a deacon (1850) and priest (1872), and as rector of Trinity Church, Plattsburg, Pennsylvania, and Christ Church in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
