Fulton J. Sheen

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, 1957

Fulton Sheen was an American bishop (later archbishop) of the Catholic Church known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. Sheen worked on three books with Yousuf Karsh: This is the Holy Land, and This is Rome (1959); and These Are The Sacraments (1962).

We recently worked with the The Archbishop Sheen Spiritual Center in Peoria, Illinois, on a search for this photograph. Our colleagues at the Library and Archives of Canada dug deep and found us this image from This is the Holy Land.

The Bishop can be seen in this wedding photograph of Yousuf Karsh and Estrellita in 1962.
