Bishop Corrigan Heads Catholic U. For Second Term Sacred Congregation At Trustees' Petition Makes Appointment Washington, Aug. 8.--The Most Rev. Joseph M. Corrigan, Titular Bishop of Bilta, has been reap- pointed Rector of the Catholic Uni- versity of America, after complet- ing an initial appointment of five rears, it is announced here today. The reappointment was made mblic following receipt of a com- nunication from Vatican City, which said that, under authority given by His Holiness Pope Plus XII, the Sacred Congregation of Seminaries and of University Studies "selects and names the Most Excellent and Most Reverend Joseph M. Corrigan to the office of Rector Magnificus of the Catholic University of America." The Sacred Congregation, it was stated, acted "in response to the petition of the trustees" of the university, "presented with due observance to the Holy. Father." Bishop Corrigan is the sixth Rec- tor to guide the destinies of tim Catholic University of America; the fifth successive one to be ele- vated to the episcopacy, and the first to be so honored during' his first term in office. The Most Rev. John J. Keane was already Bishop of Richmond when he was named first Rector of the university. A native of Philadelphia, Bishop Corrigan studied at La Salle Col- lege in that city and the Seminary of St. Charles Borromeo, Over- brook. He received his Doctora*e in Sacred Theology from Propa- ganda College in Rome in 1903, the same year he was ordained. Upon his return to the United States, the future Bishop served as a cur- ate in Philadelphia, as Superinten- dent of the Catholic Missionary Society, as Archdiocesan Director of Charities, as Moderator of the Priests' Conference and later as Director of Layme's Retreats. Pope Pins XI made him a Domestic Prelate in 1929, and created him a Prothonotary Apostolic in 1937.
