Biographical Note

William K. Leahy was born May 27, 1935 in Philadelphia to John and Geraldine Leahy. Bill, as he was affectionately known, was a deeply religious man and devout Catholic at the time he entered St. Charles Seminary in 1951 while still a sophomore in high school. He was a brilliant student and shortly after graduating from the seminary he was sent to study scripture in Rome where he was ordained in 1959. This was still a relatively new field of study for the Church because it was only approved in 1943 did Pope Pius XII. Shortly the beginning of the Second Vatican Council in 1962 Leahy had a personal meeting with Pope John XXIII about the study of scripture and was given a warning about straying from Church doctrine.

For the next three years Leahy was a translator for the American Secretariat for the Council. Shortly before the council, he earned his doctorate from at Dominican University in Theology. At the Council he was known as a brilliant translator who was able to transcribe the daily Council speeches from Latin to English the same day. The Council also inspired Leahy's idealism and became a dedicated believer in the liberal cause of the Church during and after the Council.

The end of the Council was just the beginning for Leahy who developed a working relationship with other progressive theologians. In 1965 he was assigned to St. Charles Seminary in Philadelphia where he was fired in 1966 for teaching his new progressive beliefs that included his support for a married clergy and contraception. He remained a priest for a while and presided over the marriage of a fellow priest in San Diego in 1967. After a few other small assignments he was defrocked from the priesthood.

Leahy's life thereafter was consumed by his alcoholism, which he overcame in 1975. Shortly after this time, he began reaching out to the poor and the underprivileged. His first position was as a high level administrator at a hospital that he soon quit so he could work directly with the poor. He spent the last years of his life reaching out and ministering to the homeless, addicts, people with AIDS, and gays and lesbians. He was also involved in several progressive organizations such as the Federation of Christian Ministers, where he served a term as president. He also served as president of CORPUS, an organization that advocated for married priests. Lastly, he was active in the organization of Call to Action that called for renewal and was made up of excommunicated Catholics.

The most monumental part of Leahy's later life was his adopted son David, whom he adopted when he was still teaching at St. Charles Seminary. Leahy was known as a devoted father and grandfather during the last years of his life. William K. Leahy remained in Philadelphia until his death following a minor illness on January 9, 1999.

The William K. Leahy Papers consists of seven series. The first series contains Latin copies of speeches made by the bishops at the Second Vatican Council. Most of these speeches include English translation notes that Leahy made before making full English translations of all Council speeches. Also included in this series are his personal notebooks and journals from the Council. The second series contains written English statements from the Bishops of the Council. Most of these also include personal notes made by Leahy on the doctrine that the Bishops where discussing in their statements. There are also multiple copies of the released statements; the original statements include notes made on the document made by Leahy.

The third series contains English news releases from the council. Most of these news releases were made from Leahy's translations of the Council speeches. These news releases are titled as "Council Digest" and include news releases for the American delegation. There are also news releases included, in English, that were published for the members of the Council. The fourth series is a two box collection of Council pamphlets that Leahy collected. Most of these pamphlets are doctrinal statements that were released by the Council. Also, every one of these pamphlets is in Latin.

The fifth series is a collection of Italian and French newspapers that are about the events of the Council. Most of the French newspapers discuss the French delegation during the Council, as well as French Church politics.

Lastly, these foreign newspapers are in good condition. The sixth series includes American newspapers concerning the council and the Papacy.
