He describes the creative ways they tried to obtain money for operations: such as Cogley writing a moderately successful play, Chicago Catholics and labor, and how the house was treated by Catholic leaders like Father Daniel Lord in St. Louis and Chicago Bishop Bernard Sheil. He speaks about his writing and editing career for Catholic publications such as Today, a student magazine he helped create, at U.S. Catholic, and finally at Commonweal.

The Greenwood Encyclopedia of Daily Life in America [Four Volumes] ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The course of daily life in the United States has been a product of tradition, environment, and circumstance. How did the Civil War alter the lives of women, both white and black, left alone on southern farms? How did the Great Depression change the lives of working class families in eastern cities? How did the dicovery of gold in California transform the lives of native American, Hispanic, and white communities in western territories? Organized by time period as spelled out in the National Standards for U.S. History, these four volumes effectively analyze the diverse whole of American experience, examining the domestic, economic, intellectual, material, political, recreational, and religious life of the American people between 1763 and 2005. Working under the editorial direction of general editor Randall M. Miller, professor of history at St. Joseph's University, a group of expert volume editors carefully integrate material drawn from volumes in Greenwood's highly successful Daily Life Through History series with new material researched and written by themselves and other scholars. The four volumes cover the following periods:The War of Independence and Antebellum Expansion and Reform, 1763-1861, The Civil War, Reconstruction, and the Industrialization of America, 1861-1900, The Emergence of Modern America, World War I, and the Great Depression, 1900-1940 and Wartime, Postwar, and Contemporary America, 1940-Present. Each volume includes a selection of primary documents, a timeline of important events during the period, images illustrating the text, and extensive bibliography of further information resourcesÑboth print and electronicÑand a detailed subject index
