What the letters reveal

archbishopThe Center for Irish Programs at Boston College will host a book event for His Grace is Displeased, Selected Correspondence of John Charles McQuaid. One of the book’s editors, Margaret Ó hÓgartaigh, will speak at the event, which will held Mar. 25 at 4 p.m. in Burns Library. His Grace Is Displeased contains a selection of the letters of John Charles McQuaid, Roman Catholic archbishop of Dublin from 1940-72, that reveal the huge range and extent of his activities, contacts and correspondents in educational, health, ecclesiastical, cultural, political and international affairs. According to the publisher: “John Charles McQuaid thought like a demon, wrote like an angel, and was meticulous in attending to every detail of his ministry as Archbishop of Dublin. There was no aspect of the religious and social life of Catholic Ireland that escaped his eye, and this legendary attention to detail is reflected in his illuminating correspondence.”
