Walter Edward Cassidy was born September 24, 1916 in Mora, New Mexico.

He attended St. Thomas Seminary in Denver to study the priesthood. He served as priest in Sapello, New Mexico prior to 1943.

In 1943, while he was the Priest at the Penasco Parish in Taos, New Mexico, a photographer followed him during his daily activities as a Priest. These photos are now with the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information collection.

Father Walter played the organ and did woodcarvings. He also taught a general science class at the high school in Taos and was a Boy Scout Troop Leader for the troop in Penasco.

He went to the Catholic Parish in Albuquerque until the late 1970's. In the late 1980's he returned to Mora at St. Gertrudis church as a part-time retired Priest. Father Cassidy died May 15, 1994 at the age of 78 years old. He is buried in the Cleveland Catholic Cemetery.
