William White is the George Washington of the Episcopal Church: chaplain of the Continental Congress and later the U.S. Senate; architect of the democratic Episcopal constitution; twice Presiding Bishop.

It’s long since lost that position, of course, but never the memory of White of Pennsylvania. He made the Episcopal Church what it is today.
