Brother Walsh served as President from 1941 to 1974.   He served longer as an International President than anyone before him, and ushered in an era of stability and prestige that serves our great union to this day.

Brother Walsh’s career with the IA was characterized by the highest integrity and courage.  His devotion to his International and his fellow IA members is unparalleled and made him a much-loved and well-respected figure for more than 75 years.

President Emeritus Walsh passed away on August 13, 1992.  He was 92 years old.
