This early portrait of Morris was taken by pioneer photographer Joseph Buchtel about two years after Morris arrived in Oregon to assume the position of Episcopal Bishop of Oregon. Bishop Morris was one of the longest serving Episcopal bishops, keeping his post until his death in 1906. In 1869 he founded St. Helen's Hall Girls' School, now known as the Oregon Episcopal School. In 1875 he founded Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland.
