HIS EXCELLENCY, THE MOST REVEREND
THOMAS J. WALSH, S.T.D., J.C.D.
Archbishop of Newark
As we, the class of '49, prepare to leave the friendly walls which have sheltered
us for the past four years, we cannot help but pause to thank one who has been greatly
responsible for these years of happiness. His Excellency, the Most Reverend Thomas
J. Walsh, S.T.D., j.C.D., has taken a fatherly interest in all of the activities of Villa
Victoria, watching over us with loving care. He has watched the Villa'grow from a
very small, unknown Academy to its present size and reputation. He has encouraged
us in all our fields of endeavor, music, art, and forensics, and by his coniidence in
our abilities has given us confidence in ourselves.
While Archbishop Walsh was Bishop of Trenton he secured from Mr. james
Cox Brady the sum of 550,000 with which he purchased the present site of Villa
Victoria. 'It was established as a Mother House, Novitiate, Probandate, juniorate,
High, Normal, and Music Schools for the Religious Teachers Filippini of the Ameri-
can Province of St. Lucy. After he was made Archbishop of Newark in 1928, his
interest in Villa Victoria continued and it was through his endeavors that the present
site of Villa Walsh in Morristown, New Jersey, was obtained. The Mother House
was transferred to Morristown and Villa Victoria remained as a private Academy
The Archbishop, by his work, has provided for us a school where we have
received a thorough education and excellent training in the Catholic principles of
life. We have been well prepared by our teachers and we stand ready to assume
our places in a troubled and Godless world. We are deeply grateful to His Excellency
for making possible our Alma Mater and the training which it has provided. Our
parting words to you, dear Archbishop, are a sincere and loving "God bless you."
May He bless all your labors as He has blessed your work at Villa Victoria. In the
heart of each of us on our Graduation Day is a prayer of thanksgiving for the fatherly
love we have received from you. May you have many more years of fruitful labor
in the vineyard of your Lord.
