CHICAGO, Jan. 30 (AP) The most Rev. Charles Palmerston Anderson, presiding bishop of the protestant Episcopal church of the United States of America died today.
Death came at 8:42 a.m. today the result of a heart attack nine days ago from which the bishop never rallied. He was 64 years old.
Bishop to the Chicago diocese for a quarter of a century, he had been raised to the primacy of this church only two months ago. His health had been apparently good, despite a weak heart. Until the fatal attack January 21, a few days after Bishop Anderson had returned from an eastern trip.
Apostle of world peace and church unity over a span of nearly a half century, most Rev. Charles P. Anderson was destined to stand at the head of his denomination in the United States only two months.
His election to the primacy in November 1929 crowned 43 years of church service and 25 years as bishop of the Chicago diocese. During those years he forged into world prominence as an advocate of Christian unity and as a builder.
