THEODOSIUS, BROTHER (Edward Brennan -- Died Oct. 20, 1917)

"Old students will read with regret the news of the death of Brother Theodosius. The good Brother was one of those quaint Irish characters whose nimbleness of mind and goodness of heart have made the race famous. Students will remember with pleasure the story-telling ability of Brother Theodosius, and the wonderful memory which remained with him through all the vicissitudes of old age. He was born in County Kilkenny, Ireland, and was 80 years old at the time of his death. Brother Theodosius died as he had lived -- a simple, and good and God-fearing religious. Many a prayer will go up to God for the soul of the good Brother from his student friends of former years."

-- Scholastic, 51:76 1917
