Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Hummell Greer (1844-1919) was an American Protestant Episcopal bishop. He was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, (now West Virginia), graduated at Washington College (Pa.) in 1862, and studied at the Protestant Episcopal Seminary, Gambier, Ohio. Ordained a priest in 1868, he was rector successively at Covington, Kentucky (1868-1871), Providence, Rhode Island (1871-1888), and New York City at St. Bartholomew's Church, 1888-1904. In 1903 he was elected Bishop Coadjutor for the New York diocese and in 1908 succeeded Bishop Potter upon the latter's decease. He was replaced as rector of St. Bartholomew's Church by Dr. Leighton Parks. Bishop Greer made himself known as an untiring personal worker in his parishes and his diocese, and as a believer in direct and unceremonious relationship between clergy and laymen. Following his death, the Hope Farm School in Dutchess County, New York, was renamed "Greer School."show more
