HELLMUTH, Isaac, Canadian Anglican bishop, born in Warsaw, Poland, 14 December, 1819. He is of Jewish descent, was educated at Breslau, and, having been converted to Christianity and ordained in the Anglican church, settled in Canada about 1856. He was appointed successively archdeacon and dean of the diocese of Huron, and on 24 August, 1870, was consecrated coadjutor-bishop, with the title of bishop of Norfolk. In 1871, on the death of Bishop Cronyn, Dr. Hellmuth succeeded him as bishop of Huron, but resigned this office in 1883 on being appointed assistant bishop in the diocese of Ripon. Since 1885 he has been rector of Bridling-ton, Yorkshire. While in Canada he established Huron college for the education of the future clergy of the diocese, and was principal and divinity professor in it in 1863. A few months afterward the London collegiate school, since named Hellmuth college, was erected, and he also established a ladies' college, which was opened in 1869.
