Edward Cardinal Mooney (1882-1958)

He was Bishop of Rochester from 1933 to 1937 and Archbishop of Detroit from 1937 to 1958. He was created Cardinal Priest of Santa Susanna in the consistory of 1946. He died from a heart-attack in Rome on October 25th 1958 only hours before the Conclave began.

The first three photos are from his installation as Archbishop of Detroit:
