Accessed via newspapers.com

Ferdinand Quincy Blanchard (1876-1966) was a U.S. Congregationalist minister, religious writer, hymn writer, and humanitarian.  He was active in parish ministry from his ordination in 1951 until his retirement (at age 74) in February 1951.  Blanchard served in three congregations, the last one (Euclid Avenue Congregational Church, Cleveland, Ohio) for 36 years, almost to the day (from February 1915 to February 1951).

Some of the hymnal companion volumes (especially those for the Baptist Hymnals of 1975 and 1991) I consulted stated erroneously that Blanchard retired in 1955, but I have documented independently that he retired in 1951.  I am not overly critical of such errors, for, in the age of the Internet, finding much information and checking facts is easier than it used to be.  I do, however have, a preference for accuracy.
