Preview

Drinan's interests and areas of expertise were broadening, to the point where, although he had zero political experience and had never even registered as a member of a political party, he could at least appear to be as well informed as any candidate for office. On January 12, 1970, Drinan met with Peter O'Malley, a Catholic; Kenneth Wilson, a Protestant; and Obermayer, a Jew, and asked to run for office.

Keywords: Father Robert Drinan; Jesuit priests; political activity; Peter O'Malley; Kenneth Wilson; Obermayer
