Archdiocesan Files of Rev. Joseph E. Birmingham
Summary of Some Birmingham Abuse Documents
| page 1

October 14, 1992

Apparently prompted by Sr. Grace Kenning's call to Sr. Catherine E. Mulkerrin, a review of Birmingham's file was done. This review confirms that the 1990 Rossman claim letter led to an out-of-court settlement, and states that after Birmingham was removed from St. Ann's in Gloucester, he was sent to the Institute for Living in Hartford. The April 4, 1987 letter to Cardinal Law is summarized here, but the previous allegations to Mulcahy and Birmingham's admission to Banks are not mentioned, though it was those allegations that caused Law to remove Birmingham from Gloucester (see the date on Birmingham's assignment record). The end of this file summary reviews the conclusions reached by the Institute for Living during Birmingham's treatment.
