Historiographer of the Episcopal Church 

The General Convention of 1838 established this office. The historiographer collects documents related to the Episcopal Church and sees that they are transmitted to the Archives of the Church in Austin, Texas. The historiographers of the church have included Samuel Farmar Jarvis (1838-1851), Francis Lister Hawks (?-1866), William Stevens Perry (1868-1898), Samuel Hart (1898-1917), Edward Clowes Chorley (1919-1949), Edgar Legare Pennington (1949-1951), and Walter Herbert Stowe (1952-1967). From 1976 until 1989, the Church Historical Society was the historiographer. On Mar. 22, 1989, John Everett Booty became the historiographer.
