The Rev. Tobias S. Haller, BSG: William Reed Huntington. He was the rector of Grace Church, New York, the acknowledged leader of the House of Deputies at General Convention (Synod) for 36 years; author of the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral, which sets generous terms for the reunion of denominations; the force behind the restoration in 1889 of the ancient order of deaconesses; and a liturgical scholar whose efforts at Prayer Book revision led to the 1892 edition of the U.S. book, offering unprecedented flexibility and spiritual enrichment. In short he was “Mr. Episcopalian.”
