Catholic Labor Activism: The Career of Bishop Hugh A. Donohoe in California
Hugh Donohoe was a Diocesan priest, labor union specialist, professor, editor, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, Auxiliary Bishop of the San Francisco Archdioces, and Bishop of Stockton and Fresno, California. Donohoe personified Catholic labor activism from the 1930s through the Cold War years. Donohue was a central figure in a network of militant Catholics in California who were inspired by the writings of Pope Pius XI and by the Catholic labor encyclicals to mobilize the church hierarchy and laymen and women on behalf of a program of labor reform leading to the expansion of union membership and labor union power in California and the nation more generally. The paper is based on archival sources and it addresses several issues central to the theorizing of social movement and social reform organization mobilization and process. Donohoe's work as a Catholic labor activist will be compared and contrasted with the work of other "labor priests" and Bishops in other major cities in the United States during the period who were sympathetic with and worked to extend the influence of labor unions.
