ROBERT J. CORNELL
Congressional business card signed by Robert J. Cornell as a U. S. Congressman from Wisconsin. Cornell was one of only two Roman Catholic priests to serve as voting delegates in Congress.
Business card signed "Robert J Cornell/M. C." 3½x1¾ card. Cornell (1919-2009) was a Democratic Congressmen from Wisconsin's 8th Congressional District (1975-1979). He was also ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1944, which made him one of only two Roman Catholic priests to serve as voting delegates in the U. S. Congress. Cornell had liberal views on most issues, although he opposed spending government money on abortions. He attempted to win back his seat in 1980, which he lost in 1978 to Republican Toby Roth, but withdrew from the race after Pope John Paul II asked ordained priests not to run for elected office. Cornell was also a teacher - he taught in Philadelphia parochial schools from 1941 to 1947 and history and political science at St. Norbert College from 1947 to 1979 and from 1979 until his death - and a writer. Lightly soiled, otherwise in fine condition.
