Click on an image to enlarge
Archbishop of New York John Hughes - CDV of the first Archbishop of NY who presided over a period of explosive growth for Catholicism in NY. He was regarded as "the best known, if not the best loved” Catholic bishop in the country. He became known as "Dagger John” both for his following the
Catholic practice wherein a bishop precedes his signature with a cross, as well as for his aggressive personality. He founded St John’s College (now Fordham University) and began the construction of the current St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth
Avenue. At that time it was in a still-rural part of Manhattan and was dubbed "Hughes’ Folly” by the press. Ultimately his foresight proved providential for its location in midtown Manhattan. Backmark E. Anthony, New York.
