Description:
Charles Comfort Tiffany (1829-1907) was an American Episcopal clergyman, born in Baltimore. He served as a chaplain for a Connecticut regiment during the Civil War. He studied at Dickinson College, Andover Theological Seminary, and at Halle, Heidelberg, and Berlin; and was ordained priest in 1866. He was Archdeacon of New York (1893-1902). He married Juila Wheeler, niece of William Butler Ogden, the first mayor of Chicago, at Saint James Church in the Bronx. He had met her while serving in the parish prior to his call to Boston and return to New York as rector of Zion (Manhattan) and Archdeacon. After her death, he commissioned a stained glass window in her memory showing the view from their Connecticut summer home, from the firm of his relative Louis Comfort Tiffany.

His publications include History of the Protestant Episcopal Church (1895) and The Prayer Book and Christian Life (1897).

Tiffany was the son of Comfort & Laura Tiffany, and related to Charles Lewis Tiffany, founder of Tiffany & Co. jewelers. He served as a pall-bearer at the funeral of the Manhattan jeweler.
