Bishop Arthur Nutter ThomasPrint Page
A panel under his coat of arms commemorates Bishop Arthur Nutter Thomas.
Elected bishop of Adelaide (in succession to J. R. Harmer) by a panel of selectors in England, Thomas was consecrated in Westminster Abbey on 2 February 1906. He arrived in South Australia on 2 April and was enthroned in St Peter's Cathedral two days later. His episcopate was to span 34 years and 179 days, the longest, to then, of any Anglican in Australia. The diocese covered the whole State so that, in addition to the tasks of administration in Adelaide, the bishop had to do much travelling. He died in 1954.
