Pioneer Clergyman. Reverend Kip left St. Paul’s Seminary, Albany New York, in December 1853. His task was to perform a missionary of his church’s faith to the western gold country. William Kip became California's first Episcopal bishop and later the first Diocesan Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church for California. As "Missionary Bishop of California," he toured the Mother Lode district and Southern California founding parishes. He served as rector of Grace Church on the southeast corner of California and Stockton Streets in San Francisco, and its congregation became the nucleus of the Grace Cathedral where he served until his death.
