The Living of Maisie Ward

Dana Greene

In a time when Catholic women were expected to stay home and raise families, Maisie Ward decided she wanted to make a greater contribution to her faith. With her husband, Ward published original works by Catholic writers and translations of noted European Catholic theologians. Ward also wrote, lectured, traveled, and raised money for her causes.

Publication Year: 1997

“This is a well-written, well-documented work, and it includes an extensive index and bibliography. Anyone interested in Catholic lay ministry and the lives of women who made a difference will find this a fascinating piece of writing.”— Spiritual Life

“This book is for those who followed Maisie Ward and the exciting decades of the 1920s to the 1950s in Catholic publishing. Sheed and Ward did much to advance Catholic writing and scholarship. This well-researched, readable and enjoyable biography of one-half of the partnership is a joy to have.” — Library Association

“In writing the life of this exceptional woman . . . Greene reconstructs the several worlds inhabited by her protagonist, worlds which need to be reinstated within the Catholic historical memory.” — The Catholic Historical Review
