Birth: Jan. 26, 1837
Death: Apr. 17, 1923

Fourth Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church, Tuttle's Episcopal rector Thomas Judd inclined him toward the ministry. Following such education as the local schools offered and three years under Judd's tutelage, he entered the academy in Delhi, New York in 1850. In 1853 he was baptized in the Episcopal Church and confirmed by Bishop Wainwright. He enrolled in Columbia College and graduated second in his class in 1857. Following his graduation, he entered the General Theological Seminary, from which he graduated in 1862. Later that year he became a deacon and the following year he was elevated to the priesthood. While ministering among his rural parishioners, he was elected as missionary bishop of Montana with jurisdiction in Utah and Idaho. After consecration in Trinity Chapel in New York in 1867, he labored in the rocky vineyards of the Northwest for the next 19 years. In 1868 he was elected bishop of Missouri, but he did not accept the position. The following year he moved his family to Salt Lake City, but moved back to Missouri in 1886. In 1903 through seniority, he became presiding bishop of his church. He was a bishop for 56 years and had helped to consecrate 89 bishops.
