Biography John Sylvester John Gardiner was Rector of Trinity Church, Boston, Massachusetts, president of Boston's Anthology Club, and active in the Boston Athenæum. He was for 37 years the best-known and leading Episcopal clergyman of Boston. Trained for the law, he turned to divinity and for 25 years was rector of Trinity Church, Boston. Despite this conservative bent, he was on very amiable sociable terms with his Unitarian brethren. He wrote lyrics for several of Oliver Holden's psalm-tunes.
