Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Right Reverend George Ashton Oldham (1877-1963) was the third Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany in the United States from 1929 to 1950, during turbulent the times of The Great Depression and World War II. He was also notable as the primary author of the catechism used in the Episcopal Church USA for decades until 1979. Now largely forgotten, Oldham was a major religious Protestant leader for several decades in the middle of the last century, and a serious candidate for presiding bishop. Oldham grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and attended Cornell University, where he was an active debater, and graduated with an A.B. in 1902. He served as a chaplain at Columbia University while in seminary in 1906. In 1908, he graduated from the General Theological Seminary with his bachelor's degree in divinity.
