What’s online?


The James R. Cox online collection contains images from 1930 chronicling the life of Father James R. Cox, a Pittsburgh Catholic priest and a political and social activist. Images were selected for their portrayal of Father Cox's endeavors to help those in need. They show dinners for the poor during the Depression, crowds rallying to support Father Cox, unemployment lines, and the distribution of bread.
