Excerpt from History of St. Patrick's Parish, Cleveland, Ohio, 1853 1903
In giving to the public the History of St. Patrick's Parish, it is proper to explain that, while the present pastor projected the work, for various reasons it was deemed advisable to entrust its composition to others. His share in the volume consists in collecting the engrav lugs, putting together the several sketches, and preparing the book for publication. The chronicle of the parish and of the temperance societies, which comprises the greater portion of the narrative, was written by William A. Manning, who for many years was a member of St. Patrick's congregation, and from the year 1880 to the year 1900, excepting a brief interval, was a member of the Council. During his several terms as councilman he had charge of the financial accounts and prepared the annual report. Mr. Manning brought to his work an acquaintance with every pastor of the parish, a knowledge of its pro gress, and an enthusiastic interest in its success. The admirable nar rative of the Golden Jubilee celebration was written by Miss Ann Eliz abeth o'hare, of the Catholic Universe. The sketches of several of the pastors were taken from Rev. G. F. Houck's History of the Diocese of Cleveland; other sketches of the pastors were prepared by Brother John A. Waldron.
