Hermon Griswold Batterson (May 28, 1827 – March 9, 1903) was born in Marbledale, Connecticut. He was ordained to the diaconate on November 17, 1861 by Alexander Gregg and to the priesthood on December 19, 1865 by Henry Benjamin Whipple. Batterson became rector of Saint Clement's Church, Philadelphia in 1869, and served in that capacity until 1872. He was subsequently rector of the Church of the Annunciation, also in Philadelphia, from 1872 to 1888. He served as rector of the Church of the Redeemer, New York City, from 1891 until his retirement.

His widow donated the building of Christ Church Cathedral, Salina, Kansas in his memory.

Batterson's Sketch-book of the American Episcopate (1878, 1884) is a standard biographical work for American Anglican church history.
