Cantwell, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Los Angeles? Why, it was John McCormack. And who was that Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church who, in 1965, celebrated mass in Yankee Stadium?

Roman Catholic Bishop John J. Ward of Los Angeles, who had been one of three surviving American bishops who participated in the groundbreaking Second Vatican Council in the early 1960s, died Sunday in Culver City. He was 90. Ward died of complications from old age, according to a statement from his family.

He was the last priest ordained by the first archbishop of Los Angeles, John J. Cantwell, and the first graduate of St. John's Seminary in Camarillo to become a bishop.
