Calendar of Documents and Related Historical Materials in the Archival Center; Archdiocese of Los Angeles, for the Most Reverend J. Francis A. McIntyre, Volume One: 1948-1960;...for His Eminence, James Francis Cardinal McIntyre, Volume Two: 1961-1970. Prepared by Sister Mary Rose Cunningham, C.S.C. With a Preface and Historical Introduction by Francis J. Weber. (Mission Hills, California: Saint Francis Historical Society, 15151 San Fernando Mission Blvd., Mission Hills, California 91345. 1994. Pp. ix, 294; vi, 265. $50 pet volume.)

This two-volume calendar of correspondence to and from the Most Reverend J. Francis A. McIntyre (1948-1953) and James Francis Cardinal McIntyre (1953-1970) describes the collection held by the Archival Center of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. While the Archival Center is a private ecclesial depository, accredited scholars may consult its resources made more accessible by this carefully prepared compendium.

During the past decade the collection, gathered from myriad sources, has been catalogued by Sister Miriam Ann Cunningham, C.S.C., and Sister Mary Rose Cunningham, C.S.C. Employing a system used by the Academy of American Franciscan History, the cataloguers coded each document and summarized the contents. Each entry has also been identified by date, origin, and correspondent, with added notations regarding Language and length. The items are grouped by year, although entries within the year are not necessarily chronological. Entries are indexed by name, but not by subject. McIntyre's homilies, addresses, and lectures are also listed.

The catalogue is particulary significant in view of the eventful decades of Cardinal McIntyre's archiepiscopate. When he became the eighth head of the diocese in 1948, Archbishop McIntyre applied his considerable administrative experience to reorganizing the commissions, secretariats, and social agencies of the rapidly expanding region. He expanded the office of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, initiated an outreach to the Latino community, and in 1956 organized the Lay Mission Helpers. Most importantly, in response to southern California's explosive postwar expansion he built approximately one school a month, tripling the number of parochial schools to 347.

When McIntyre became the twelfth American member of the Sacred College of Cardinals, he assumed additional responsibilities as papal legate to the Marian Congress in Nigeria and as a member of the commission planning Vatican Council II. The new role is reflected in a few letters to fellow cardinals and with Curia officials. One letter sent by a Vatican official in 1969, noting the amount of news coverage the archdiocese had received, observes that efforts are needed to offset such attention. …
