Fourth Bishop and Second Archbishop of the Dubuque Archdiocese. Archbishop Keane served from 1900 until poor health forced him to retire in 1911.
He was the first Archbishop of Dubuque to have the last name Keane - the Archbishop who succeeded him also had the last name Keane. The men were not related, and they had very different personalities. John Keane was referred to as "Sugar" for his kind and generous nature. James Keane was referred to as "Hickory" for his stern manner.
Archbishop Keane was not buried at the Cathedral. Like the second Archbishop Keane he was buried at Mount Olivet, Key West, Iowa.
