The "Fond-du-Lac Circus," 1900

At the Consecration of the Rt. Rev. R. H. Weller as the Episcopal Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Fond du Lac (Wisconsin), 1900. The men marked "10," "11," and "12" are (respectively) St. John Kochurov ("John of Chicago"), Fr. Sebastian Dabovich (a major missionary to the Serbs in America), and St. Tikhon, later Patriarch of Moscow. (For those unfamiliar with Orthodox clerical garb, the three Orthodox clergy are wearing the equivalent of "choir dress," i.e., not serving in any liturgical capacity. The other clergy are of course vested for church service.)

 

Seated L to R: The Rt. Rev. Isaac Lea Nicholson, Episcopal Bishop of Milwaukee; the Rt. Rev. Charles Chapman Grafton, Episcopal Bishop of Fond du Lac; and the Rt. Rev. Charles P. Anderson, Episcopal Bishop Coadjutor of Chicago.

 

Standing L to R: The Rt. Rev. Anthony Kozlowski of the Polish National Catholic Church; the Rt. Rev. G. M. Williams, Episcopal Bishop of Marquette (now Northern Michigan); Bishop Weller; the Rt. Rev. Joseph M. Francis, Episcopal Bishop of Indianapolis; the Rt. Rev. William E. McLaren, Episcopal Bishop of Chicago; the Rt. Rev. Arthur L. Williams, Episcopal Bishop Coadjutor of Nebraska; St. John (Kochurov) of Chicago, protomartyr of the Bolshevik Revolution; Fr. Sebastian Dabovich; St. Tikhon, then Orthodox Bishop of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands.
