A "Who" Among Catholic Publications 

The tDa^nificat 

An Illustrated Monthly Published by the 

Sisters of Mercy, and Blessed by 

His Holiness, Pope Pius X. 

The complimentary notices of the press tell the reason of its rapid 
growth in public favor. On the other side of the Atlantic the "Dean 
of Iviterary Workers," Rev. Matthew Russell, S. J., tells the readers of 
the September Irish Monthly: 

An excellent magazine is The Magnificat, which is published at 435 
Union Street, Manchester, New Hampshire, U. S. A. It is the neatest maga- 
zine we are acquainted with, and only a dollar a year, though of quite stately 
dimensions; and its contents are marked by great variety and high literary 
merit. Its cheapness is a marvel to us, for we have always understood that 
printing is more expensive in the States. 

And at home, in the September issue also, the editor of the excellent 
Christian Family is kind enough to say: 

The Magnificat, published at Manchester, N. H., bids fair to outrank 
all its fellows as an ideal Catholic magazine. The Editor seems to have the 
rare faculty of gathering around her the sprightliest writers to be found. 
There is never a dull page in the entire magazine, and the Book Notes are 
real reviews, not a glance at the title and author, and a few general remarks 
such as we have come to expect from the generality of reviews. The price is 
ridiculously low for such a high-class periodical, being only $1.00 a year.

Cardinal's Residence, 

408 North Charles Street, 


June the 21st, 1910. 
Dear Miss Curtis: 

I am most pleased to learn that your new work, " The American Cath- 
olic Who's Who," is soon to be published, and knowing as I do of the 
great success your recent admirable work, "Roads to Rome," met with, 
I feel sure that this, your latest effort, will be rewarded with the success 
it deserves. 

I take pleasure in recommending it as a work eminently useful and of 
great interest not only to Catholics, but to the public at large. 

Most faithfully yours in Xto., 

J. Card. Gibbons, 
Archbishop of Baltimore. 


When the Editor of the A. C. W. W. was a little girl, one of her fa- 
vorite books, found in her grandfather's library, was Lodge's Peerage. 
For its titles, degrees, dates she cared nothing, but what captivated the 
child's imagination was its history; its account of what people had done. 
When, in later years, that fascinating biography, the English Catholic 
Who's Who, fell into her hands, it recalled the earlier and beloved book. 
Therefore it did not seem strange that she should consent, when she was 
asked by several ecclesiastics whose opinion she valued, to undertake the 
compiling and editing of an American Catholic Who's Who. The only 
hesitation on her part was for fear her physical and mental equipment 
would not be equal to the task. Viewed in the aggregate it seemed on 
too large a scale to be undertaken, but the Editor saw from the beginning 
that like all great enterprises the work only needed to be classified and 
systematized in order to sim^plify it. A plan was drawn up, carefully 
considered, and adhered to step by step throughout a period of twenty- 
one months, during which eight thousand Catholics received a notice ask- 
ing for their record. Nearly all the sketches finally accepted for publication 
were, therefore, obtained at first hand; about one-fourth being received 
through Catholic agents in different parts of the country. These records 
have been cast, in their essentials, in a certain form, while at the same 
time some scope has been allowed for the narrative style, as in the valuable 
English Catholic Who's Who; the Editor believing that by so doing the 
book would be made more interesting than if it were a mere dry recital 
of facts and dates. 

Difficulties, obstacles, and disappointments were not lacking as the work 
progressed. There were those who thought they saw in it pride, vanity, 
and worldliness; others insisted it was to be a mere social register; still 
others, who knew they ought not to be left out, refused to go in the book; 
a fourth class were those who were utterly indifferent to the whole scheme. 

Again and again, through the Catholic press of the country, whose Edi- 
tors with only three exceptions lent to the book intelligent comprehen- 


sion and noble support, the Editor of the A. C. "W. W. has stated what 
the work is, and what it is not ; that it is designed not to exploit the indi- 
vidual as such, but to individualize him in order to show in the concrete — 
to each other and to the non-Catholic world — what Catholics have done 
and are doing to add to the prestige, dignity, and power of the Church. 
In its completed form the book tells of noble effort, of men and women 
who have frequently risen from humble beginnings to positions of honor 
and influence, of those with a better start in life who have used their 
position and talents for the highest purposes; it tells, also, of many an 
ancient Catholic lineage on which to look back with gratitude and pride; 
of those who have entered the Church, overcoming peril and obstacle. To 
the Editor, through whose hands passed all these many records, the work 
has been from the first Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam; and it is in this sense 
that the work is now launched. 

Because it is of the American people, the A. C. W. W. is cosmopolitan. 
It embraces diverse types of Americans, and includes a few foreigners who 
are our devoted friends. The one question asked, and as far as possible an- 
swered throughout the work, has been : " Is this a person whom Catho- 
lics, and we may say non-Catholics, will want to know about and ought to 
know about ? '^ 

The Editor wishes first to record her grateful thanks and appreciation 
to her friend, collaborator and adviser in this work, Mr. William Stetson 
Merrill (A.B., Harvard), of the I^ewberry Library, Chicago, whose judg- 
ment, prudence, and business ability went far toward making the work a 
success. It was the Editor's desire to name him as co-Editor ; this he posi- 
tively declined, on the ground that he had not done enough work and 
planning to warrant it; nevertheless, without his staunch support, both 
moral and material, the Editor knows it would have been impossible to 
carry on her task. Her special thanks are also due to Mr. C. C. Copeland, 
and Mr. Charles A. Mair of Chicago, whose generosity and material help 
made it possible to carry on the financial part of the work. 

There is a long list of those who should be publicly thanked, for encour- 
agement and support, and for helping to get names and sketches of people 
for the book. Among the Hierarchy and Reverend clergy are: His Emi- 
nence Cardinal Gibbons; the Most Reverend Archbishops, Ireland of St. 
Paul, Farley of ^NTew York, and Glennon of St. Louis ; the Right Reverend 
Bishops Allen of Mobile, Gandgan of Sioux City, and Guertin of Man- 


Chester; the Eight Eeverend Monsignor Shahan, Eeetor of the Catho- 
lic University of America; the Very Eev. John J. Cavanaugh, O.S.C,

son, C.S.C, of the Ave Maria; the Eev. John J. Wynne, S.J., Editor of

George Wharton James, the author, of Pasadena, Cal.; Mr. John P. 
O'Hara of the Catholic Sentinel, Portland, Oregon; Mr. John B. Mc-

sketches of French- Americans ; Miss Anna T. Sadlier of Montreal, and 
Hon. Joseph A. Chisholm, Mayor of Halifax, who rendered valuable aid 
with the Canadian list. 

Among foreign contributors the Editor is indebted to Mr. Charles Fisk 
Beach and Madame A. Morel, of Paris, to three others in England, Bel- 
gium, and Italy, who prefer to remain unknown, and to Messrs. Burns and 
Gates, of London. 

Since this work was begun, some of the people who sent in their records 
have died ; these sketches the Editor decided to publish, with the announce- 
ment of the person's decease. 

In compiling the clergy list, the Editor felt that the devotion and self 
sacrifice of the priesthood entitled them all to mention in the Catholic 
Who's Who, but as this was impossible because of their number, and as 
they are all listed in the Catholic Directory, it was decided not to go 
below the rank of Monsignor and Very Reverend, except where a priest 
was an author, educator, scientist, musician, missionary, or had followed 
some special line of work, or held some especial position, outside the regu- 
lar parochial duty. 

In conclusion the Editor asks that those who note any errors in the 
book will correct them; and that all who are interested will send their 
own records, or sketches of their friends, for a second edition. The first 
edition, full as it is, contains many omissions; these it is hoped will be 


supplied after the book is out, and its character and value as a reference 
work become known. 

All such communications can be sent direct to her or through the pub- 

To the Catholic public this work is now entrusted by the Editor. If it 
meets with a kindly reception her labor will not have been in vain.

his important diocese he showed himself a strong and competent prelate, 
reforming a number of abuses, and winning the love and veneration of all 
his people, especially by his devotion to the poor, and the modesty and sim- 
plicity of his life. 

On August 4, 1903, he was elected Pope, and five days later was crowned 
Supreme Father of the Universal Church. He entered upon his pontificate 
with the reputation of being not only a deeply religious man and wise 
administrator, but of a learned scholar and friend of the arts. Passion- 
ately devoted to music. His Holiness has sought to raise Church music to 
the highest plane; it was through him that Don Luigi Perosi, the priest 
composer, was first brought to public attention. 

Pius X is also Prefect of the Congregation of the Holy Eoman and 
Universal Inquisition, or Holy Office of the Consistorial Congregation;

AVERY, Mrs. Martha Gallison (Moore) : 
Author, lecturer, educator. Socialist; 
convert to the Church; b. April 6, 1851, 
in Steuben, Me.; d. of A. K. P. Moore. 
Her ancestors were among the pioneer 
settlers of Massachusetts, the eastern 
portion of which later became the State 
of Maine. On her father's side she is 
Irish, Scotch and Dutch; on her mother's 
she is English. A four-fold stream of 
Revolutionary blood flows in her veins, 
Major John Moore of Bunker Hill fame 
being one of her kinsmen. Prior to the 
War of the Rebellion Greneral Samuel 
Moore, her grandfather, was a dominant 
factor in state politics for half a century. 
Ed. at the public schools, she regards her 
fifteen years of intellectual discipline 
under a master in Cosmic Law as her 
most valuable period of study, one that 
later led her to the door of the Catholic 
Church, which she entered on May 1, 
1904, being baptized by Rev. Father 
O'Sullivan, S.J., at the Church of the 
Immaculate Conception, Boston, Mass. 
Mrs. Avery entered public life as a char- 
ter member of the First Nationalist Club 
of Boston, which was made up of such 
distinguished men and women as Rev. 
Edward Everett Hale, Mrs. Mary A. Liv- 
ermore, etc. Carrying the principles of 
the " Nationalization of Industry and 
thereby the Promotion of the Brother- 
hood of Man " to their logical expression, 
Mrs. Avery became a Socialist. For 
seven years she was Director of the 
Karl Marx class that taught the eco- 
nomics of Socialism. Later the class be- 


came known as the Boston School of 
Political Economy. Mrs. Moore-Avery 
is acknowledged as an authority upon 
the philosophy, the history, the economic 
theory, and the tactics of International 
Socialism, and as a master in the sci- 
ence of Political Economy. In an edi- 
torial in The Outlook, March 20, 1909, 
ex-president Hoosevelt recommends a 
book of which Mrs. Moore- Avery is the 
author in collaboration with David Gold- 
stein, a convert and one of her economic 
students, " Socialism: The Nation of 
Fatherless Children." During the twelve 
years of her membership in the Socialist 
parties, Mrs. Avery was constantly in 
the lecture field, aiding the cause by 
voice and pen, until (in 1903) she was 
led to recognize that in the world of 
practical matters Socialism is the anti- 
Christ, as Modernism is the anti-Christ 
in the world of theoretical conception. 
One year later she became a member of 
the Church. At present she is the head 
of the Boston School of Political Econ- 
omy, training a group of brilliant young 
men to meet the erroneous arguments 

and the sophistical statements of So- 
cialist propaganda. As a lecturer she is 
cited by the press of New York as 
being " wonderfully eloquent," and by 
that of Massachusetts as " one of the 
greatest woman orators of the world." 
She is a contributor to the National 
Civic Federation Review, to Social Jus- 
tice; writes special editorials for The 
Boston Traveler; has very near com- 
pletion a book entitled " Twenty-five So- 
cialists Answered," besides the MS. of a 
work on the Primal Principles of Po- 
litical Economy. M. in 1880 to Millard 
Filmore Avery. Address: 202 West

BEDDING, Thomas: 

Editor; b. in London, England. Came 
to the United States, and now resides 
in New York City, where his business 
interests lie in that new, interesting, 
and (when rightly directed) instructive 
entertainment, known as the moving pic- 
ture show. Its growth in New York and 
the rest of the country has been rapid. 
In the great metropolis there are over 
five hundred of these places already 
(1910) established, and there is every 
prospect that the number will be doubled 
in the next decade. The business has its 
organ, a weekly publication called The 
Moving Picture World, of which Mr. Bed- 
ding is the editor. It is said on most 
reliable authority that the company or 
companies financing these shows pay 
Mr. Edison $10,000 every week for the 
use of one of his inventions necessary to 
the successful operation of the pictures. 
As this is, of course, only one of the 

items of expense, some idea may be 
formed of the weekly and annual cost 
of this kind of entertainment, which di- 
rectly or indirectly afi'ects the manufac- 
turers of " animated photographs," as 
they are called in the trade, illustrated 
songs, lantern lectures, and slide-makers.

B. April 10, 1870, San Buenaventura; 
s. of Juan Camarillo, who emigrated to 
California from Mexico in 1834, and be- 
came a trader with the Indians between 
San Francisco and San Diego, disposing 
of their wares and receiving currency 
therefor. The hospitable mission fathers 
gave him a room in which to lodge, and 
there the Indians came and transacted 
their business. With the funds thus real- 
ized, amounting to about $3,000, he 
opened a store in Santa Barbara. He 
married Senorita Martina Altagrazia 
Herndudez in 1840, and in 1852 moved 
to San Buenaventura. Juan Camarillo 
was educated at St. Vincent's College, 
Cal., and later devoted his attention to 
agriculture and business; is one of the 
large land owners of California, and 
identified in an oflficial capacity with 
nearly every banking institution in the 
county; is a Director of the First Na- 
tional Bank of Ventura, the Home Sav- 
ings Bank, and also of the Ojai State 
Bank at Nordhoff. Last summer he 
deeded to Rt. Rev. Bishop Conaty, for 
school purposes, the old Camarillo home- 

stead in Buenaventura, and he is now 
planning to build near his home at 
Camarillo a chapel as a memorial to his 
parents. This chapel will be for the 
benefit of all Catholics living in that 
part of the country. Mr. Camarillo is 
a Knight of Columbus, and one of the 
leaders of the Order in California; is Past 
President of Cabrillo Parlor Native Sons 
of the Golden West, a trustee of the Ben. 
Prot. Order of Elks of Santa Barbara, 
and President of American Latin Union 
No. 1. Has made a number of trips to 
Rome, and on each occasion was granted 
an audience by the Pope. Upon his last 
visit, the Holy Father removed from his 
head the white silk cap (called the 
solideum) which he was wearing, and 
presented it to Mr. Camarillo as a 
souvenir of his visit. The latter pre- 
sented this cap to the Knights of Co- 
lumbus, of Oxnard, upon his return 
home. His house is much admired for 
its beauty, and contains many paintings 
and rare curios gathered from all parts 
of the world, as well as a collection of 
Indian relics, many of them the handi- 
work of tribes now extinct. The Indian 
Cap of Penance, used to designate an 
Indian who had been guilty of crime, is 
in this collection. It is made in the 
shape of a fool's cap, and from the roots 
of an herb, so finely woven into a net, 
that it has the appearance of leather.

CAPEL, Right Rev. Mgr. Thomas John: 
B. in 1836; ordained by Cardinal Wise- 
man, 1858; co-founder of the Training 
College for School Masters at Hammer- 
smith, London; was its Vice Principal, 
1856-60; at the end of the latter year 
ill health prevented him from accepting 
the proffered principalship. He retired 
to Pau in the Pyrenees and here estab- 
lished an English speaking mission, of 
which he was Chaplain, 1860-68. His 
lecture on Bishop Colenso's works, and 
on Catholic doctrines attracted the Prot- 
estant public; the conversion of Lady 
and Miss Duncan, of Mrs. Wave, grand- 
daughter of the Bishop of Exeter, of 
Miss Wilmot Chetwode the authoress, 
and of the Episcopalian clergyman. Rev. 
Harrington Moore, made him still more 
prominent. With restored health he re- 
turned to England and was appointed 
to missionary work by Cardinal Man- 
ning. December 24, 1868, he received into 



the Church the Marquess of Bute in the 
Chapel of the Sisters of Notre Dame, 
Southwark, in the presence of the Bishop 
of the diocese, Right Rev. T. Grant, 
an event which gained for him a place 
in the pages of Lothair as Mgr. Catesby, 
and once by a slip of Disraeli's under 
his own name. His sermons and doc- 
trinal lectures delivered in London pul- 
pits, especially in that of the old Pro- 
Cathedral Kensington, and one series in 
Rome during the Vatican Council, made 
him one of the most widely popular 
of preachers. He was named Domestic 
Prelate to Pius IX, 1873, in which year 
he founded the Catholic Public School, 
Kensington. From 1874-78, he was Rec- 
tor of the Catholic University College 
just established by the Bishops of Eng- 
land. As financial support for the latter 
Institution could not be obtained, Mon- 
signor Capel, having exhausted his own 
resources, resigned his position, Car- 
dinal Manning writing to him next day: 
" I know and bear witness that you have 
strained yourself even beyond your 
strength." For a while the Catholic Pub- 
lic School continued, but was closed at 
a later period. In 1883 he came to the 
United States, preached and lectured in 
the chief cities and at length settled in 
California, accepting the Tutorship of 
Pio Valensin in the McCauly Valensin 
family at Arno, where he makes his 
home, but doing missionary work from 
the Cathedral of Sacramento as a center. 
In England he has published Reply to 
Gladstone's Vaticanism, and Ought the 
Queen of England to hold Diplomatic Re- 
lations with the Pope (both published by 
Longmans, Green & Co.) ; Catholic (eight 
editions) ; The Pope, the Vicar of Christ

Sang in the Jesuit Church, New York, 
until the issue of the Papal restriction 
in regard to church choirs, since which 
time her soprano voice has been heard 
in the concert halls of America, Berlin, 
London, and the principal towns of Eng- 
land, which she, with her sister, Grazia, 
toured with Patti in 1907. An Eng- 
lish newspaper said of them: The Sig- 
nore Carbone make music primarily for 
musicians. The quality of her voice was 
pronounced pure lyric ecstasy, while her 
sister's was spiritual, rich and deep. 
Max Bruch, German composer, has as- 
sociated the names of the sisters with 
the music of religion, by composing for 
their voices a duet entitled The Cross, 
sung for the first time at Queen's Hall, 
London, 1907.

CARPENTER, Paul DUlingham: 

Jurist; s. of the late Matthew Hale 
Carpenter, one of the most distinguished 
and brilliant lawyers in the United 
States, and one of the foremost orators 
and debaters that ever 'held a seat in 
the national senate. He was Senator 
from Wisconsin from 1869 to 1875, and 
from 1879 to his death in 1881. Mr. 
Carpenter's mother is Caroline Dilling- 
ham Carpenter, daughter of Paul Dilling- 
ham, who was twice governor of Ver- 
mont, and twice representative in Con- 
gress from that State. She is also a 
sister of Wm. P. Dillingham, who was 
once governor of Vermont, On the pa- 
ternal side, Paul D. Carpenter is de- 
scended from William Carpenter, who 
came to America in the ship Bevis, in 
1638. William Carpenter, a son of the 
immigrant of that name, held important 
offices in the Massachusetts colony, and 
was a man of character and influence. 
On his mother's side, Mr. Carpenter is 
a descendant of John Dillingham, who 
came to America with the Winthrop col- 
ony in 1630, and he, too, was prominent 
in establishing the principles of free 
government. John Dillingham, the great- 
great-grandfather of Paul Carpenter, was 
a soldier under General Wolfe in the 
campaign against Quebec, and fell with 
his commander in that memorable strug- 
gle, which practically ended the French 
rule on this continent. Paul Dilling- 
ham Carpenter was bom in Milwaukee,

ship with Franz C. Eschweiler, May 1, 
1894, under the firm name of Eschweiler 
& Carpenter, which continued for one 
year, and since its termination, he has 
conducted the business alone. His most 
important case is that relating to the 
assignment of F. T. Day, through the 
success of which Day's assignee will lose 
the greater part of claims against clients, 
amounting to more than $160,000. In 
1902, Mr. Carpenter was elected Judge 
of the Probate Court of Milwaukee 
County, and was re-elected for a second 
term. At the end of the second term he 
declined re-election, and has since been 
engaged in his private practice. On No- 
vember 25, 1891, he was married to 
Emma W., daughter of the late Franz 
Falk, a prominent brewer. Judge Car- 
penter is a member of the college society

as a journalist, and edited The Indian 
Herald at Allahabad, 1879-80, during 
which time he is said to have conceived 
the plot for his famous novel, Mr. Isaacs, 
first published in 1882. More than thirty 
novels followed this first one, showing 
Mr. Crawford as a wonderful student of 
men and women (and their environment), 
in different countries and of different 
races. Whether in America, as in The 
Three Fates; in England, as in The Tale 
of a Lonely Parish; in Germany, as in 
Greifenstein, or in his numerous Roman 
sketches, Mr. Crawford was equally at 
home. There was not a shade of the 
Italian character, north or south, that 
was not faithfully reproduced by him. In

we have a lasting picture, afmost a 



classic, of historic Rome, and the Queen 
City, Venice. Received into the Cath-

his profound admiration for the late 
Pontiff, Leo XIII. On being asked 
shortly before his untimely death in 
April, 1909, to write the story of his con- 
version for Some Roads to Rome in 
America, he, after some hesitation de- 
clined, while expressing to the Editor his 
deeply abiding conviction of the truth and 
claims of the Catholic Church.

he secured employment on a sheep ranch; 
was next a post-trader at Fort Stanton 
in Lincoln County, going from there to 
Trinidad, Col., thence to Raton, return- 
ing to Lincoln County in 1885, when he 
entered the employment of James J. Do- 
lan, wliolesale and retail merchant, and 
became manager of the business; deputy

beginning of the Spanish-American War, 
Mr. Curry was appointed by Governor M. 
A. Otero as first lieutenant of the Rough 
Riders, and shortly afterwards was pro- 
moted to captain. Upon returning from 
the war in 1898, he engaged in the real 
estate business at Tularosa, New Mexico, 
and upon the creation of Otero County 
in March, 1899, was appointed sheriff of

regiment was ordered home to be mus- 
tered out in 1901; ordered back to the

of Samar, which was at that time the 
most turbulent island in the Philippines,

accepting the governorship of the Island 
of Samar, he was given a free hand by 
the Governor General and received the 
hearty co-operation of the military de- 
partment in establishing law and order.

extent that at the expiration of two years 

civil government was established and the 
people allowed to elect their own officers.

DALY, Arnold (Peter Christopher Ar-

Actor; b. October 4, 1875, in Brooklyn, 
N. Y.; s. of Joseph J. and Mary Daly, 
natives of Ireland. The parents of George 
Bernard Shaw, the Irish playwright, in 
whose plays Mr. Daly achieved his most 
noteworthy successes, were their intimate 
friends. Mr. Daly was educated at the 
Academy of the Sacred Heart and St. 
Patrick's Academy, Brooklyn. His first 
theatrical engagement was as call boy 
at the old Lyceum Theater; his first 
part that of a butler in a play in which 
Fanny Rice was starring; played minor 
parts until he came into prominence 
through his impersonation of Chambers 
in Frank Mayo's production of Pudd'n- 
head Wilson. Prior to his taking up the 
Shaw plays, Mr. Daly achieved successes 
in Because She Loved Him So, The Bird 
in the Cage, Barbara Frietche, in which 
Julia Marlowe was the star; Self and 
Lady, Are You a Mason ? When We Were 
Twenty-One, Lady Margaret, Hearts 
Aflame, Cynthia, The Girl from Dixie, 
and Secret Service. On December 9, 1903, 
he produced Shaw's Candida for a single 
matinee at the Princess Theater. The 
success of both play and actor was so 
marked that Mr. Daly and Winchell 

Smith formed a partnership to produce 
the play at the Berkeley Lyceum. There 
Candida ran for more than 150 nights. 
Mr. Daly followed it with the Shaw plays, 
The Man of Destiny, and How He Lied 
to Her Husband, the latter a travesty 
on Candida, written by Shaw expressly 
for Mr. Daly. The next Shaw production 
was You Never Can Tell, which had as 
long a run. Then came John Bull's 
Other Island. In the fall of 1907 Mr. 
Daly founded the Theater of Ideas at the 
Berkeley Lyceum, N. Y., playing three 
one-act plays there each night. This he 
abandoned, and in December, 1907, ap- 
peared in a revival of Candida. M. July

Member of the Archaeological Club of

States Catholic Historical Society; Hon- 
orary member of the American Catholic 
Historical Society of Philadelphia. 
Father De Roo is best known as the 
author of a two-volume work on the 
History of America Before Columbus, a 
work which he was led to undertake 
while engaged in other historical studies 
in the Vatican Archives. In his search 
for information concerning Pope Alex- 
ander VI, he occasionally met with un- 
published records having to do with the 
religious history of America before the 
Spanish discovery, and was induced, in 
consequence, to begin the long series of 
labors which resulted in the publication 
of his history. Father De Roo began his 
missionary labors in Oregon nearly forty 
years ago, and, in the pursuit of his 
priestly duties, traveled much of the 
Northwest before the advent of railroads 
or any other roads worthy of mention. 
In September, 1908, he resigned the pas- 
torate of St. Joseph's Church, Portland, 
owing to ill-health and advancing years, 
and is now retired from active pastoral 
work. He has accumulated a large 
amount of historical material which has 
not yet been prepared for publication.

DRURY, Rev. Edwin: 

Priest, missionary, author; b. June 
16, 1845, near Knottsville, Ky. His an- 
cestors were among the Catholic settlers 
of Maryland in the Seventeenth Cen- 
tury. Some of them may have reached 
Maryland on the Ark. and the Dove. 
His father, Hilary Drury, was bom in 
Maryland, 1799, and came to Kentucky 
in 1808. His mother, Teresa Coomes, 
was born in Kentucky, 1807. His ma- 
ternal grandfather, Francis Coomes, after 
leaving Maryland, tarried several years 
in Virginia and North Carolina, and 
came to Kentucky with all his family 
about 1795. It is interesting to note 
how fruitful the grace of religious voca- 
tions has been in this family. Rev. John 
Wathen, Rev. Charles I. Coomes, and 
Rev. A. A. Aud, were grandsons of Fran- 
cis Coomes, and Archbishop Montgomery 
of San Francisco was but one degree 
farther removed in direct line of descent. 
The family is still represented among 
the priests of Kentucky by Rev. Edwin 
Drury, Rev. Louis H. Spalding, Rev. 
Celestine Brey and Rev. Lucien Clements. 



It would be a long list to name the rep- 
resentatives of the family who have en- 
tered Religious Orders, especially the 
Sisterhoods. Ed. elementary school of 
his native parish, St. Lawrence; St. 
Mary's College, Marion County, Ky.j St.

diocese of Louisville; assigned at once 
to parochial work; for twelve years in 
charge of large rural parishes; later 
took charge of an extensive territory in 
which there were but few Catholics, and 
began mission work among non-Cath- 
olics; relinquished all local charge in 
1894 and as Diocesan Missionary for ten 
years devoted his energies especially to 
his missionary work among non-Cath- 
olics; participated in the First and Sec- 
ond Missionary Conferences held under 
the auspices of the Catholic Missionary 
Union; became chaplain (1906), at the 
Mother-house of the Sisters of Loretto 
at the Foot of the Cross, which position 
he still holds. Father Drury has long 
been an occasional contributor to Cath- 
olic publications, and for several years 
has conducted the Question Box page in 
The Christian Family and Men and 
Women. The most important product of 
his pen is a book that has been highly 
praised, especially by those who are in- 
terested in missionary work. It is en- 
titled What the Church Teaches; An 
Answer to Earnest Inquirers (Benziger 
Bros., New York). Address: Nerinx,

years old when Augustin Daly saw her

Miss Fealey was engaged for Eunice in 
Quo Vadis, by F. C. Whitney, under

pearance in New York. This led to her 
engagement as leading woman by Wil- 
liam Gillette. Miss Fealey, who at that

Mr. Gillette for two seasons, playing in 
this country and in England the role of 
Alice Faulkner in Sherlock Holmes.

The Professor's Love Story; Mary in 
The Middleman; Ada in David Garrick; 
and Filaberta in The Cardinal. Fol- 



lowing this engagement Miss Fealey sup-

GAYNOR, Hon. William J.: 

Jurist; Mayor of New York; b. 1851, 
at Whitestone, N. Y.; received his early 
education at the Assumption Academy, 
Utica, N. Y., and through the influence 
of Brother Justin, Superior of the acad- 
emy, was induced to enter the order of 
the Christian Brothers; went to Boston, 
taught for one year, then left the Order; 
returned home and entered the White- 
stone Seminary. After a course of study 
there he entered the office of Judge Ward 
Hunt, at Utica, N. Y., to study law; 
admitted to the bar (1875) ; elected Jus- 
tice, Supreme Court of New York, 1893; 
re-elected, 1907; fought corruption in 
high and low places, and although al- 
ways a Democrat, declared himself a bit- 
ter foe of the ring power in that party; 

secured the conviction for election frauds, 
of McKane, a notorious and powerful 
boss; Mayor of New York, January, 
1910. In August, 1910, an unsuccessful 
attempt on the life of Mayor Gaynor 
called forth from men of all classes, ir- 
respective of party, a magnificent tribute 
to his stainless integrity, honor, and 
freedom from political corruption. Wil- 
liam Travers Jerome, always a scathing 
critic, says that he had opposed the elec- 
tion of Mr. Gaynor, but he now thought 
him one of the best mayors, if not the 
best, the city has ever had. The Phila- 
delphia Record (Democratic) says that 
he has been teaching mayors all over the 
country what can be done to break rings, 
to oust rascals, and to secure efficiency 
and some degree of economy in the pub- 
lic service. Some of the reforms of the 
Gaynor administration, accomplished in 
less than a year, have been: Removal 
of the aqueduct board and order to the 
new board to wind up the business, sav- 
ing in commissioners' and engineers' sal- 
aries annually $200,000. One hundred 
and twenty engineers, foremen, and la- 
borers dismissed from the water depart- 
ment, saving annually $185,000. Twenty 
heads of bureaus and laborers dismissed 
in the office of the borough president of 
Manhattan, saving annually $80,000. 
Bureaus reorganized in the Bronx and 
85 employees dismissed, saving annually 
$130,000. One hundred and fifty fore- 
men and laborers dismissed in Bronx 
Park department, saving annually $110,- 
000. Thirty drivers, stablemen, and men 
with no fixed duty, dismissed from fire 
department, and changes in details and 
accounting divisions, saving annually 
$100,000. Sixty-five men dismissed from 
the sewer department, saving annually 
$70,000. Controller Prendergast has dis- 



missed 30 high-salaried men and clerks, 
saving annually $60,000. Twenty per- 
sons dismissed from the department of 
buildings aaid offices, saving annually 
$20,000. In the highway department 
494 men were laid off for the winter 
months, saving $100,000. By the reor- 
ganization of the bureau of street open- 
ings and the abolishment of an anti- 
quated system the city will save an- 
nually an amount it is impossible to 
estimate, but which the Mayor says is 
millions. Address: 20 Eighth Ave., 
Brooklyn, N. Y., and St. James, L. I.,

then at Bedford, Iowa. Entered the 
Benedictine Monastery of the Sacred 
Heart, Oklahoma, in 1890; ordained to 
the priesthood in St. Mary's Abbey, 
Buckfast, England. Gifted with a talent 
for painting, his art was cultivated, first 
in America, and later his superiors sent 

him abroad. He studied mostly in Rome, 
under Professor Guiseppe Gonnella, Ciro 
Galliazzi, and S. Nobili of the Vatican, 
making a special study of the Old Mas- 
ters and sketching from nature; leaving 
Italy, he traveled through France, Ger- 
many, Austria, Switzerland, Greece, 
Syria, Palestine, and Egypt. After 
completing his studies, and before re- 
turning to the United States, he was 
accorded the rare privilege of painting 
His Holiness Pope Pius X. The por- 
trait was received with much favor at 
the Vatican and by the art critics at 
Rome, and the Holy Father was pleased 
to greet Father Gerrer as his priest 
artist. A duplicate of this painting was 
made for the Vatican (until that time 
the only one that had been accepted). 
In 1908, Father Gerrer made a nine 
months' trip through the West Indies, 
Bahama Islands, and Florida, where he 
sketched the scenery and fruits of the 
tropics. It is his ambition to paint re- 
ligious subjects, though up to the pres- 
ent time he has confined himself to por- 
traits. Some of his paintings that may 
be seen in Chicago are portraits of Br. 
J. B. Murphy, Dr. Edwards, and S. C. 
Scotten; also Judge Clinton Irwin at 
Elgin, 111. Address: Sacred Heart Mis-

HARSON, M. Joseph: 

Merchant; b. in New York City; m. 
Marianna F. Kelly, graduate of Sacred 
Heart Academy, Elmhurst, R. I. Ed. at 
Brown University, Providence, R. I. (A. 
B. in 1884). A prominent merchant in 
Providence, R. I., for many years; since 
1908 engaged in real estate business in 
New York City. Has taken an active 
part at conventions of the Catholic 
Young Men's National Union for a 
number of years; inaugurated the liter- 
ary feature at Catholic conventions by 
delivering the first prepared address ever 
read, at the convention in Brooklyn, 
1883; a suggestion in the essay led to 
the establishment of Communion Sunday 
(annually observed on the Sunday with- 
in the octave of the feast of the Immacu- 
late Conception) which received the ap- 
proval of the Third Plenary Council at 
Baltimore in 1884, and later was in- 
dulgenced by Pope Leo XIII. Organized 
in 1885 the movement to erect a monu- 
ment to Orestes A. Brownson, writer and 
philosopher, and after years of work has 

won success; the monument was dedi- 
cated in New York City on October 12, 
1910; was one of the organizers of the 
Catholic Congress held at Baltimore, 
Md., November 11th and 12th, 1889, and 
drew up plan under which it was con- 
ducted; elected to membership on the 
committee to arrange for future con- 
gresses, and on its organization was 
elected Secretary; organized the Phi 
Kappa College Fraternity at Brown 
University in 1896, to be composed of 
Catholic students with the purpose of 
bringing together Catholic college men 
and to aim to establish chapters in all 
higher institutions of learning at which 
Catholic men attend. Prepared The 
Juvenile Court Law, which was first 
enacted in Rhode Island in 1897, and 
secured its adoption by the Legislature. 
An authority on the so-called Torrens 
System of Land Titles, and it was by 
his presentation of the subject in 1906 
and 1907, by public addresses and writ- 
ten articles, that the New York Board 
of Real Estate Brokers was led to take 
it up, resulting in the enactment of the 
Land Title Registration Law, which 
went into effect February 1, 1909. In 
1908 and 1909 was invited by the Pub- 
lic Lecture Bureau of the Board of 
Education to deliver a series of lectures 
on Land Title Registration. Several ar- 
ticles contributed by him to The Boston 
Pilot in 1890 on The Negro Problem, 
attracted attention; they suggested the 
organization of a society of Catholic lay- 
men patterned after the St. Vincent de 
Paul Society, for the purpose of car- 
rying on local work among the colored 
people and to maintain Industrial 
Schools for colored people in the South; 
the movement was strongly favored by 
John Boyle O'Reilly, whose sudden death 




a few months later deprived the pro- 
posed movement of a strong support. 
Contributed to Catholic press for past 
30 years on matter particularly relating 
to young men's societies and the lay 
apostolate. Mr. Harson believes that 
as the most potent constructive in- 
fluences in the past were, ( 1 ) the princi- 
ple of obedience, and (2) the found- 
ing of religious communities; so, in 
the future, the potent constructive in- 
fluences will be, (1) the principle of 
co-operation, more especially between 
priest and people, and (2) an intelligent 
development of social life in connection 
with all Church interests. Address:

the late Right Rev. Bernard J. McQuaid, 
D.D., first Bishop of the diocese), in 
1869; made her perpetual vows on July 
2, 1871. Manifested a remarkable gift 
for art, which, at the Bishop's instance, 
was broadly cultivated; also a notable 
business woman, and assistant superior 
at a very early age. She had large 



classes in painting, in oils and water 
colors, both in the community and its 
higher schools. Succeeded the late 
Mother Stanislaus Leary as General Su- 
perior in 1882. Mother Agnes co-oper- 
ated most efficiently with her ecclesias- 
tical superior in his great work for edu- 
cation: the enlargement of Nazareth 
Convent, the Mother House, and the 
Academy connected therewith, with its 
275 pupils; the erection of Nazareth 
Normal School, the community's house 
of studies; of Nazareth Hall, a Prepara- 
tory School for boys under 12 years of 
age; St. Agnes' Conservatory of Music 
and Art; the Home for the Aged; and 
St. Joseph's Hospital in Elmira; a vast 
increase in the parochial schools testi- 
fying to her keen sense of the needs of 
the time, her breadth of mind in the 
matter of her Sisters' training, her reli- 
gious zeal, and splendid business abil- 
ity. All the schools of the Sisters of 
St. Joseph have been under the Board 
f> of Regents of the University of New 
"i^ork since 1878. Many of the teachers 
of this Institute in the diocese of Roch- 
ester have taken their final training in 
languages, music, art, or other special 
studies in the great European centers.

HOEGAN", Stephen Henry: 

Editor, inventor, author, photographer; 
b. February 2, 1854, at Norfolk, Va.; 
his father was a native of Cork, Ire- 
land, and his mother was born in Sligo, 
Ireland, though her ancestors came from 
the North of England; m. Mary Cath- 
erine Cecelia O'Connor, daughter of a 
convert. Ed. at the primary schools in 
Cork; grammar school in Nyack-on-the- 
Hudson; St. Francis Xavier's College, 
New York. In 1874 he won in a com- 
petition for an expert photographer on 
the New York Daily Graphic ; here he 
remained until 1884, invented the process 
of photo-lithography which was used 
there from 1877 until the paper stopped; 
also invented, while on the Graphic, a 
method of half-tone illustrating which 
was used first on March 4, 1881, the 
first half-tone in the world to be used 
in a newspaper; resigned from the 
Graphic to introduce illustrations into 
the plate service of the American Press 
Association, where it is said he sup- 
plied 32,000 illustrations to 10,000 dif- 
ferent papers, thus setting the style for 
newspaper illustration and also popu- 
larizing it; first art editor of the Re- 
corder; art editor of the New York 
Herald, introducing half-tone engraving 
and color illustrating to that paper; 
after installing illustrations as a fea- 
ture of the Herald he was dismissed by 



Mr. Bennett. In 1881 he had invented a 
method of applying photography to etch- 
ing and steel engraving; many etchings 
by Hubert Herkomer, F. S. Church, Rob- 
ert Blum, and others, were made by his 
process, which he applied in his busi- 
ness; resumed newspaper illustrating on 
the New York Morning Journal; when 
John R. McLean of the Cincinnati En- 
quirer bought that paper he taught him 
the use of illustrations. About this 
time he invented a method of newspaper 
illustrating by the three-color process. 
In 1896 he went on the New York 
Tribune and there invented and patented 
a method of using half-tone cuts on 
the newspaper which forced other papers 
into it until that system of illustrating 
has gone around the world; is known 
as the Father of half-tone illustrating 
on the newspapers. In 1906 he started 
a paper in Newark, The Monitor, of 
which he was, for a time, managing edi- 
tor. Mr. Horgan was granted five pat- 
ents for his inventions connected with 
the printing press; one invention of his 
on which he did not seek a patent, is 
used in every illustrated paper in the 
world. Since 1895 he has been the edi- 
tor of the department of Process En- 
graving for the Inland Printer of Chi- 
cago. He is an enthusiast on the power 
of the press, and has laid plans for a 
Catholic daily newspaper in New York.
