St. Paul Seminary

Another friend and writing critic was Father Joe Barron, dean of students at the St. Paul Seminary (2260 Summit Avenue) and friend of the McQuillans.  The two men often discussed literature and philosophy as they knocked golf balls around the grounds.  Father. Joe baptized Scottie, the Fitzgerald’s’ daughter, in 1921.  He remained in contact with the family during their time back East when he taught at the Catholic University in Washington, D.C.
