Scope and Contents
The Anna M. Brady Papers consist of correspondence, manuscripts, and photographs that document the career of Anna M. Brady, a Catholic journalist who for many years was the dean of the Vatican press corps, covering synods, papal conclaves, and the Second Vatican Council. There is much about those events and about the Catholic Intercontinental Press. Of note is an extensive run of correspondence of Felix Morlion, O.P. There are also some fine original photographs of Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul I, Pope John Paul II, Mother Theresa, and others. The Anna Brady Papers are contained in 29 archival boxes (45.5 linear feet).
