In 1966, William H. DuBay was suspended from the Los Angeles Archdiocese for opining his criticism of the Roman Catholic church.
The collection includes materials related to DuBay's controversial tenure as a Roman Catholic priest and his suspension.
William H. DuBay was born in Long Beach, California in 1934. From an early age he expressed interest in joining the Roman
Catholic clergy; in 1956, after eight years of seminary training, he graduated with a B.A. from St. John's Seminary in Camarillo,
California and went on to complete post-graduate work in theology. He was ordained in 1960, at the age of 26, and stood out
as one of the youngest priests to serve in the Los Angeles Archdiocese.
