Fr. Brooks Rites
Milwaukee-(U.P.)-The Very Rev. Peter A. Brooks, S.J. president of Marquette University, who died of a heart attack Sunday night, will be buried Thursday at St. Stanislaus seminary, Florissant, Mo.
Because Fr. Brooks was once provincial of the Missouri province, he will be buried at Florissant instead of Calvary cemetery here.
The 55-year old head of the university was found dead Sunday at Johnston hall on the campus. He had been president of Marquette since 1944.
The Jesuit community of Marquette will chant the office of the dead at Gtsu church Wednesday morning. The funeral mass will be celebrated afterword by the late president's brother, the Rev. Christopher F. Brooks of the University of Notre Dame.
