Father Joseph O'Hagan, SJ

President Holy Cross College, 1873-78

“Over four hundred voted for a Catholic priest, one hundred and fifty-four, for any kind of a Protestant minister; eleven, for a Mormon elder; and three hundred and thirty-five said they could find their way to hell without the assistance of clergy.”
-- O'Hagan on being elected chaplain of the 73rd Regiment, Excelsior Brigade
