Abstract:

Drawn by opportunities in the growing frontier town, Irish men and women who were fleeing economic hardship and famine in Ireland were quick to make their mark on Chicago's political, religious, and economic life. The unique position of the Irish among immigrant groups--English speaking and more culturally attuned to Anglo-American institutions, yet Catholic--allowed them to flourish in occupations and social positions for which they have known. Most notably, the Irish in Chicago have produced eight mayors and many bishops.
