8Ziegler wrote Doehler on Nov 6, 1949, that he could not offer him a summer course because Dr Degenhard was teaching Early Modern History. https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-2004-01-16-0401160016-story.html

Edward A. Doehler, who joined the faculty of Loyola College as the school's only history professor and taught there for 55 years, died Monday at the Stella Maris rehabilitation center in Timonium of complications after surgery for a perforated ulcer. He was 94. Dr. Doehler was the oldest living alumnus of Loyola High School, where he graduated in 1926, his wife said. Four years later, he graduated from Loyola College, and in 1996 he received the college's highest honor - an honorary doctorate. For decades of Loyola College students, the answer to "Did you have Doehler?" was "Yes." "He was just Loyola through and through," said Michael J. Goff, the college's vice president for development and college relations. "From his boyhood days until the end of his life, he was involved in Loyola every year except one." It wasn't uncommon, friends said, for someone who looked older than Dr. Doehler to approach him at a restaurant to discuss a grade he gave in the 1930s. Often, they said, the professor would remember his former student. Before moving to a residence at Stella Maris in 1996, Dr. Doehler lived for many years at the Village of Cross Keys in Baltimore, and spent time at a restored log cabin near Hereford. For 37 years, he was married to the former Catherine Byrne, a mortgage banker. "He dearly worshipped the ground that she walked on," said Jenkins Cromwell, who has known Dr. Doehler for 40 years. "They made a beautiful team." Dr. Doehler was born in New York City and moved to Baltimore with his family as a 3-year-old. After graduating from Loyola College, he left the school for one year to earn his master's in history at Georgetown University. He returned to Loyola as its only history professor from 1931 to 1947. He was one of the college's first teachers who was not a Jesuit priest, Dr. Goff said. Dr. Doehler attended Georgetown University while he taught at Loyola, earning a doctorate in history in 1935. Friends said he had a personal teaching style, lacing his lessons with anecdotes and photos from his travels. Though he was trained in medieval history, he became known for his knowledge of Latin American history - including research conducted on pre-Columbian native cultures and the modern problems of countries there. Dr. Doehler joined the faculty at Mount St. Agnes College in 1947 and taught there until 1971, while also teaching at Loyola's evening college. He recently received the Mount St. Agnes Alumnae Association Lifetime Achievement Award. Upon leaving Mount St. Agnes, he rejoined the history faculty at Loyola, where he taught until 1986. "I am confident his legacy here at Loyola will long remain for his distinguished achievements and devotion to his alma mater," said Loyola's president, the Rev. Harold Ridley. Dr. Doehler, named a professor emeritus, was a former alumni association president, received the medal given to outstanding alumni and was president of the alumni club for graduates of more than 50 years. In that role, he was known for writing dozens of personal letters to members. Whenever a history department job candidate arrived at Loyola, professors made sure he met Dr. Doehler. "He had kind of a light that shone out of his eyes," said John Breihan, chairman of the history department. "It was quite usual after speaking with [Dr. Doehler] that you felt better about yourself." Dr. Doehler was a member of several historical and church groups, including the Knights of Malta. He was one of the original members of the Serra Club of Baltimore, a Catholic organization that promotes vocations for the priesthood. He also loved music. For his 94th birthday, his wife bought him a ukulele. Since 1990, Dr. Doehler had served as a board member on the Basilica of the Assumption Historic Trust - the group directing the restoration of the nation's first Roman Catholic cathedral. Others involved in the project said it played to four of his strongest passions - history, Baltimore, architecture and the Catholic Church. Trust executive vice president Robert J. Lancelotta Jr. said Dr. Doehler was the group's "wise adviser." A funeral Mass was offered Wednesday at Stella Maris. In addition to his wife, Dr. Doehler is survived by two nieces.


9Rev James L. Burke, SJ, Chair of the Dept. of History at Boston College asked Ziegler whether they had a summer teaching position for James J. Doherty, who would be promoted to assistant professor at Boston College in Septmeber. (Letter March 7, 1950). Ziegler replied they did not have any positions open. http://bcm.bc.edu/fullstory/from-bc-to-vietnam (Did he serve in Vietnam?)


10Francis Dvornik (Chomýž, 14 August 1893 – Chomýž, 4 November 1975), in Czech František Dvorník, was a priest and academic, and one of the leading twentieth-century experts on Slavic and Byzantine history, and on relations between the churches of Rome and Constantinople. Dvornik taught at Charles University in Prague, the Collège de France, and Harvard University.Arguably Dvornik's greatest contribution to research lay in rehabilitation, from a Catholic standpoint, of the Byzantine patriarch and writer, Photius.[citation needed] In 1956 Harvard University Press published a collection of Essays Dedicated to F. Dvornik on the Occasion of his 60th Birthday (Harvard Slavic studies no. 2) Born Chomyz, Moravia, Theolo.

13Ziegler wrote Hughes on May 1950 telling him that the Department was “enthusiastic about the possibility” that Rev. Hughes would join it for a year. In the Catholic Historical Review of 1921, Hughes published “History teaching at Louvain”. In 1956, Hughesbecame a member of Notre Dame History faculty. “Father Hughes has published three volumes of his History of the Church. He also has published The Reformation in England in three volumes … and several other works.”

In 1931, Hughes moved to London, to lecture at the new Catholic Centre for Higher Studies, founded by Frank Sheed. In 1934 he was appointed archivist for the Archdiocese of Westminster. He remained in London until 1955 when he was offered a post as professor of reformation history at the University of Notre Dame. He was awarded the title of monsignor in 1957. Hughes died in America on 6 October 1967 and was buried in South Bend, Indiana, United States.

Prof. Lawrence A Harper, UC Berkeley to Ziegler. “On the suggestion of Father Cadden I am writing to recommend one of my students, Francis Huntly, for a position in your department.” Colonial American History. Ziegler answered on June 27, 1949 that “we have no place… we are well equipped in American colonial and Latin-American history.

21QUAY, Eugene (1892 in DC died 1972), B. A. 1909 St Mary’s College 1912 M. A. CUA 1913 LL. B Georgetown. 1912 Editor-in-Chief of the Georgetown Law Journal (first issue).  Served in World War I. (In his CV he mentions that he never taught and has no publications! Very honest!) Quay published an article in the Georgetown Law Journal in 1960/61 on abortion  On the history of Georgetown Law https://scholarship.law.georgetown.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2719&context=facpub

Eugene Quay practiced Law in Chicago, (member of American Bar) where his wife, Effie, was a newspaper journalist as well as a pro-life author and activist. Respected by his colleagues, Eugene ascended to the legal stratosphere of membership in the American Law Institute (ALI) which still today remains the most powerfully corrosive influence on America. http://www.canonlaw.info/a_tribute.htm

Quay’s  wife, Effie Alley was born in 1899 in the Oklahoma Territories. She was raised as a Methodist, but after graduation from the University of Arkansas, she became and remained for many years an ardent atheist. She held several jobs as a newspaper reporter before finally moving to Chicago where she met and married a young Catholic attorney by the name of Eugene Quay in 1923. A son Paul Michael was born in the next year, and a daughter Clare four years later. Paul Quay, now a Jesuit theologian at Loyola University of Chicago and a renowned pro-life author in his own right, said that he and his sister were raised as Catholics, even though his mother at that time did not share her husband's faith. throughout those trying years, Effie constantly supported and encouraged her husband's largely unheralded efforts. And as the years passed and Eugene Quay's eyesight weakened, she took on the additional difficult task of legal research and writing under his direction, a sacrifice that enabled her husband to continue his value pro-life contributions for several more years. Finally, in 1972, after more than a dozen years of intensive work on behalf of the life issues, Eugene died.


22Roohan’s Yale dissertation “American Catholics and the Social Question, 1865-1900” was not published until 1976. In 1952, he became assistant professor at Yale, coming back from Iowa.

28Barbara Wallach. Luitpold Wallach: A Biography. Illinois Classical Studies. University of Illinois Press. Volume 42, Number 2, Fall 2017, pp. 269-272. “After 1933, unable to find or keep university positions in Germany because of the political situation, many German historians emigrated to the united states. Luitpold Wallach was among the younger refugees who had their doctoral degrees but could not expect to hold academic positions under the Nazi regime and its worsening anti-semitic agenda.1

Born in Munich on Feb. 6, 1910, Luitpold Wallach grew up in the schwabian village of Laupheim (studying latin, Greek, and Hebrew from age six until he left to attend the Gymnasium in Ulm on the Danube). He was a student at the university of Berlin and at the Hochschule der Wissenschaft des Judentums during 1929–30 and then at the University of Tübingen from 1931–33, receiving his D. Phil. in november 1932, with a dissertation titled Studien zur Chronik Bertholds von Zwiefalten, directed by Prof. Dr. eric König.2 With no academic appointment open to him because he was Jewish, he undertook (1933–38) a two-fold pattern of research and publication that would define his career, i.e., dividing his time between medieval history and the history of Judaism. He also turned to the other profession for which he was trained and served as rabbi in ulm/laupheim (september 1933–March 1937) and then (1937–39) as the last Bezirksrabbiner (district rabbi) of Göppingen (Württemberg), until he was imprisoned there by the Nazis and sent to dachau concentration Camp (1938–39). Strenuous efforts by friends and his sister Sally, who was residing in New York, procured his release from Dachau, and he left Germany and crossed into France with little more than three papers that he was ready to publish. After the war, he would learn that his father, whom he had last seen in Dachau, had been killed at KZ Auschwitz, his younger sister Betti had died at KZ Stutthoff, but his mother had died in Laupheim, despite the efforts of neighbors who took the risk of trying to help her, and was buried there. [End Page 269]

Before leaving Germany (in August 1939), since publication by him in Germany was no longer an option with the nazis in power, Wallach had left his first reconstruction of the Zweifalten chronicles of Berthold and Ortlieb with König to be published when the times allowed. König died in 1940, however, and, in 1941, the chronicles appeared in Germany with the names of König and Karl otto Müller as editors. Subsequently, in 1957, Wallach published his own revised and enlarged edition of the Berthold chronicle with a statement from his former teacher Prof. Dr. Heinrich Dannenbauer (medievalist at tübingen) and d. dr. max miller (Director of the Württemberg state Archives) acknowledging his position as the original author.3

After arriving in the United States in 1939, Wallach served as a rabbi first, ironically enough, in the segregated south, first in Florence, AL, and then in Knoxville, TN, where he became a citizen of the United States (1947). He wanted to leave the rabbinate and pursue an academic career, but his German doctorate was in a sense a liability so soon after the war. His command of English was superb, but the slight German accent was still there. Further, academia was not free from the taint of anti-Semitism.4 Hence, between 1940–48, he served as a rabbi, first in Ithaca, NY, then in the Syracuse University Chapel, and finally in Hamilton, ON, until he earned his second doctorate, a PhD in classics from Cornell University in 1947, with Harry Caplan as his dissertation director. Finding a permanent academic position was still not an easy task. His appointments as an assistant professor between 1951–1962 took him as far afield as the University of Oregon, the University of Oklahoma, and then Harpur College (SUNY Endicott in Binghamton, NY). Through all of those years, he kept up his research, publishing two books, fourteen articles, and twenty-three book reviews, with most of his writing done at Cornell's libraries in the summers. He also was always finding time to work on what was intended to be the major achievement...
