Fr. Edgar Graham, SJ

Rev. Edgar Graham, S.J., died on February 1, 2015 in Philadelphia, PA.

Way back in the 50s, when I first met Rev. Fr. Graham in Loyola School, Jamshedpur, I was very much impressed by his jovial nature. To my reckoning, he looked like the movie star, Danny Kaye! He was my worthy colleague for many years at Loyola. In 1968 he was the leader of about 16 Loyola teachers, who attended a seminar of Modern Mathematics in Jaipur, Rajasthan.

Rev. Edgar Graham, S.J., died on February 1, 2015 in Philadelphia, PA. He was a Jesuit priest for 60 years. A native of Baltimore, MD, Father Graham was an alumnus of both Loyola High School and Loyola College in Baltimore. After pronouncing his first vows in July of 1944 and completing studies in Philosophy at Woodstock College in 1948, he proactively sought assignment in India. It was the right calling. For more than thirty years, he dedicated himself as a teacher of math, English, science and ethics in Jamshedpur, Chaibasa and Jealgora India. He furthered his own education as well at Loyola in Jamshedpur and De Nobili College in Poona, India. In his death, all those people, who were associated with him, will miss his charming smile, subtle humor and agile walk. Prayerfully we wish that his soul may Rest In Peace.
