"McGloin, Frank. Jurist and editor. He was born in Ireland, February 22, 1846, but was brought by his parents to New Orleans in early childhood. His education was obtained in the public schools of New Orleans and at St. Mary's College in Missouri. He served in the Confederate Army toward the close of the Civil War, and after the cessation of hostilities began the study of law in New Orleans. In 1880 he was elected Judge of the Court of Appeals of New Orleans, and was subsequently reelected. For seven years he edited The Holy Family, a Catholic periodical of New Orleans. His writings in both prose and verse are characterized by the emotional touch which is peculiar to the Irish temperament."
