giles_prSome sad news, the last surviving (and last serving; 1957-1961) General Superintendent of the Universalist Church of America, the Rev. Dr. Philip Randall Giles died on July 2 at the age 96.

The funeral home obituary omits this basic fact, but this biography by Mark Harris provides context.

May he rest in peace.
