Frank O’Loughlin

Father Frank O’Loughlin heads the Migration and Refugee Service of the Archdiocese of Palm Beach. He assisted in developing the CORN-Maya project which based its philosophy on the indigenous culture, identity, and values of the Maya. Its goals are to promote legal defense, economic and social development, and the adaption of the Maya in the US with dignity. The Irish-born Roman Catholic priest founded the Mayan Guatemalan Center in Lake Worth 20 years ago. The center, FEMA and other charities are partners trying to get food, housing and supplies to some of Palm Beach County’s poorest residents. Many migrant and day laborers have moved to shelters because their homes have no electricity. Interviewed by Professor of History Robert Korstad, circa 1992. Note: This interview is audio only.
