Three essays have Irish-American interest. Humphrey Joseph Desmond, author, publisher, lawyer, and political reformer, was born in 1858 in Wisconsin. In 1891, Mr Desmond became editor of The Catholic Citizen, a Catholic newspaper published in Milwaukee. He eventually became owner and acquired ownership of other Catholic newspapers in Washington D.C., Memphis, Tennessee, and St. Paul, Minnesota. He was the first president of the Irish-American Association and wrote many articles exposing the oppression of Catholics in the U.S. Following his death in 1932, his son Humphrey Earl Desmond succeeded him as editor and publisher of The Catholic Citizen.
