William Thomas Walsh

Walsh began his career as a newspaperman, serving on papers in Waterbury and Hartford, Conn., and on the Philadelphia Public Ledger. In 1918, his activities took a more scholarly turn as he taught English in Hartford’s public high schools at the Roxbury (Massachusetts) School and at the Manhattanville College of the Sacred Heart. During the last 11 years of his life, he wrote historical biographies, a novel, a play, and several poems and magazine articles, most of them following Catholic themes.
