GANNON, S.J. Robert I. (1893-1978)
The Cardinal Spellman Story. Doubleday & Co., 1962. Dedicated and signed by Cardinal Spellman to Betty Bloomingdale. Unusual to find this book with a dust jacket in very good condition. Also tipped into book is a 1954 TLS of Robert Gannon, in which he regrets being unable to send a photograph Having passed the time of life when I cherish photographs of myself, I have unfortunately none to send to you…
GANNON was a distinguished Jesuit author and former President of Fordham University. It was this dealer’s privilege to spend two hours in the company of Father Gannon in 1970 at which time we discussed many subjects, including comments about Cardinal Spellman that did not appear in print!
