Bishop Daniel S. Tuttle : Episcopalian Pioneer among the Mormons
Mormon Historical Studies
In 1867, Daniel S. Tuttle came to Utah to establish an Episcopal mission. He and other Episcopal ministers had been cautioned by non-Mormon businessmen in Utah that they would be welcome insofar that they didn't try to tear down the Mormon Church in order to build up an Episcopalian congregation. Until his departure in 1886, Tuttle maintained a policy of friendliness toward the Mormon people and a peaceful co-existence with the Church. Episcopalian mission schools flourished during this era and were the cause of improving the Mormon schools and establishing a system of academies. Tuttle's policies toward the Mormons extended after his tenure with successive clergy.
