Anglican Tidbit: Bookplate of Frederic S. Fleming, Rector of Trinity Wall Street

Below is an interesting artefact: the bookplate of the Rev. Frederic S. Fleming (1886-1956,) Rector of Trinity Wall Street from 1932 to 1951.

The book it came from was The Divine Liturgy by Herbert Luckock, which I reviewed here.  Given his High Church inclination, I’m sure it was a favourite.

His signature in the book is here.

Like other Episcopal ministers, he started out in the corporate world, in his case Nabisco.  He was elected to the episcopate but turned it down, preferring to be a rector.  He was a member of many boards, some of them charitable institutions.
