Henry Knox Sherrill

  • A Young Rector in an Old Parish

    HENRY KNOX SHERRILL was consecrated as Bishop of Massachusetts in 1936. In that office and during his eight years as Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, he was the most influential and best-beloved Protestant leader in the United States. It was in Trinity Church, Boston, first as the assistant minister and then as the young rector of a parish made famous by Phillips Brooks, that his qualities were tested. His capacious autobiography, AMONG FRIENDS, will be published this autumn by Atlantic-Little, Brown.
