Item Description...
Edward Hanna (1860-1944) a priest from Rochester, NY, and Archbishop of San Francisco from 1915-1935, is a rare example of a Catholic prelate who operated with success in both realms of Church and State. Until now there has been no full biography of this extraordinary man. Respected and admired for his assistance to immigrants and the poor, his advocacy for workers, promotion of Catholic education, fair and balanced adjudication of several wage arbitration boards, Archbishop Hanna was held in high esteem by the mayors of San Francisco, governors of California and even President Franklin Roosevelt .Readers will gain not only information about the life of a prominent American prelate, but see how his work was part of a larger effort to push Catholicism into the mainstream, achieving a greater sense of acceptance upon the election of President John F. Kennedy in 1960.Highlights" presents Hanna's life in context of Catholic and San Francisco history" is the first full biography of a prelate who somehow has been somewhat forgotten by Catholic historians" adds greatly to the history of the NCWC as Hanna headed this organization from its inception in 1919 until his retirement in 1935" presents some interesting detail on the relationship of Church and State in San Francisco in the first third of the twentieth century

A Tribute to Archbishop Edward J. Hanna  Mar 21, 2007
Fr. Gribble's excellent work on Edward J. Hanna, a Prelate who serve his Church, Nation, State and City. A great man who left his See to live his remaining years in a mental fog in Rome. Hanna is remembered for expanding the Archdiocese. His work during the 1934 Pier Strike, still remembered. If you enjoy San Francisco, California, Catholic Church History. I wish many now deceased monsignors, priests, nuns and laity, could have read this book. Please read this book.
