Elected 1886, Day 1; served to 1901

The Rev. Morgan Dix served five terms as the President of the House of Deputies, although notoriety flowed from being in possession of the pulpit of Trinity Church, New York City.  He attended eight consecutive General Conventions as a clerical deputy from New York.  Dix  was born in New York City in 1827.  After graduating from Columbia College in 1848 and the General Theological Seminary in 1852, he was ordained in 1853 and served as assistant minister in St. Mark’s Church, Philadelphia, until he was called to Trinity Church. He remained there until his death, first as assistant minister from 1855-1859, then as assistant rector from 1859-1862, and finally as the ninth Rector of Trinity from 1862 until 1908, when he passed away.  He was a prolific writer and advocate.  A monument to Morgan Dix stands in All Saints’ Chapel at Trinity Church.
