|Title||Bishop Edward John O'Dea with acolytes, Seattle, ca. 1932 |
|Date||ca. 1932 |
|Caption||Bishop Edward John O'Dea served the Catholic community for 50 years as a priest. Appointed and ordained a bishop in 1896 in Nisqually, Washington, he presided over the Seattle community and is known for his work with laymen to build and later re-build the St. James Cathedral after the roof collapsed due to a snowstorm in 1916. He died in December 1932 after 36 years as a bishop.|
This photo taken later in his life shows Bishop O'Dea proceeding down the church steps with two attendants. Uniformed schoolchildren are waiting for him at the bottom.
|Notes||Handwritten on image: Bishop O'Dea.|

Date photograph was filed at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: March 23, 1933. Bishop O'Dea died on December 25, 1932, so the P-I filing date is likely from when the photograph was refiled after his obituary.
