On this day in 1917, the tune "St. Dunstan's" was written by C. Winfred Douglas while returning by train from New York to his home at Saint Dunstan's cottage in Peekskill, New York. Douglas became an Episcopal priest in 1899. He edited the New Hymnal in 1918, and helped develop the 1940 Hymnal as well.
