Tuttle was consecrated missionary bishop of Montana, Idaho, and Utah, in Trinity chapel, New York in 1867. Later, in 1880, Montana was made into a separate missionary jurisdiction, and Idaho and Utah remained under the charge of Bishop Tuttle. Then in 1884 Columbia college appointed him as its representative at the tercentenary of the University of Edinburgh. Nevertheless, Bishop Tuttle was active in the discussion of the Mormon question in Utah for years.
