Frederick Temple (1821-1902), Archbishop of Canterbury

Sitter in 27 portraits
Ordained in 1846 and in the same year accepted the headship of Kneller Hall, a college for the training of masters of workhouses and penal schools. In 1855 he became a school inspector, until being appointed Headmaster of Rugby School. He reformed many aspects of the school and was considered a stimulating intellectual teacher and religious man. In 1869, although reluctant to leave Rugby, he accepted the office of Bishop of Exeter. In 1885 he was transferred to the Bishopric of London. On the sudden death of Archbishop Benson in 1896, though now seventy-six years of age, he was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury. His second son, William Temple, became Archbishop of Canterbury years later.
