Roman Catholic Cardinal. He was born, schooled, ordained,was a parish priest and became a Bishop all in the Archdiocese of New York. He was appointed by the Vatican to head the huge Los Angeles Archdiocese in 1948 where he was elevated to Cardinal, the first in the western portion of the U.S. After 25 years of service, he retired under the mandatory retirement edict issued by the Vatican. He lived at St. Basil's on Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles performing the duties of a parish priest. In poor health, he was hospitalized at St. Vincent's Medical Center where he died. His successor Cardinal Timothy Manning celebrated a Pontifical Requiem Mass at St. Basil's. In the congregation were officials from the City of Los Angeles headed by Mayor Bradley. Church dignitaries from throughout the nation were in attendance. His body was entombed after the service in the Bishops crypt at Calvary Cemetery in East Los Angeles where it remained until 2002 when it was relocated to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles. (bio by: Paul S.)
