Did you know that the Episcopal Church established a War Commission during the First World War? The address was 14 Wall Street, New York, and the coadjutor bishop of Southern Ohio, the Right Rev. Theodore Irving Reese, held the job of chairman of the executive committee. He wrote to the Rev. Benjamin N. Bird, serving as a civilian chaplain at Camp Meade, Maryland, on October 3, 1918, about resources available during the influenza epidemic.

We applaud and stand with all who are raising their voices in protest against this latest injustice, and the entrenched, systemic racism in our society that it reflects. We most especially applaud all those on our streets and in our communities who are refusing to join individuals – often not from our own communities – who would cause the safety of our people, neighborhoods and institutions to be torn asunder by reckless violence.

November 22, 1963, the day of President John F. Kennedy assassination, is etched in the memory of our nation. But on the same day, the Right Rev. Harry Lee Doll was installed as the tenth diocesan bishop of the Diocese of Maryland, an event perhaps overshadowed by a national tragedy. Born on July 31, 1903 in Martinsburg, West Virginia, the son of Harry Lee and Millicent Doll, the future bishop graduated from Martinsburg High School in 1921.
