Rev. [James] Barnabas Mary Ahern
The Rev. Barnabas Ahern, a prominent Roman Catholic theologian and biblical scholar, died on Monday at the Immaculate Conception Passionist Monastery in Chicago. He was 79. The cause was complications from Alzheimer's disease, said the Rev. Michael Joseph Stengel, head of the Passionist order. During the Second Vatican Council, convened by Pope John XXIII in 1962, Father Ahern collaborated in the drafting of major texts that re-examined the church's teachings and practices. As the leading American scholar on Scripture at the council, he contributed to the decrees that examined divine revelation, ecumenism and religious freedom. The author of "New Horizons" (1963) and "Christ Among Men" (1968), he taught at the Vatican's Gregorian University, where theologians study, from 1965 to 1984, when he went to Kenya, to help establish a graduate school for theological studies. Born in Louisville, Ky., as James Ahern, he entered the Passionist order in 1932 taking the name Barnabas Mary, and was ordained a priest in 1941. [see also: Katherine (Ahern) Kelly, James J. Ahern]

Alberta Ahearn
LOUISVILLE—In the early 1950s, Alberta Ahearn was thrust into the public spotlight in a series of events capped by her testimony that helped send an alleged Communist to prison in a celebrated sedition trial. But in her final four decades, Ahearn lived in obscurity in the same white stucco cottage where she had lived in the 1950s. Her body was found this month in her kitchen. She died of natural causes—weeks or even months earlier, authorities said—but her mentally ill daughter did not report the death, even covering the body to keep it warm. Police and social workers entered the house April 6 after repeatedly getting no answer on the phone or at the door. The daughter was taken to University of Louisville Hospital for psychiatric evaluation. Ahearn, 84, never talked about her earlier fame.

It seemed Ahearn wanted the low profile, having cut off contact with people who cared about her over the past year. The only relative who could be located, a sister-in-law, declined to comment. But during Louisville's infamous encounter with the red-scare McCarthyism of the 1950s, Ahearn was anything but obscure. In 1951, Ahearn and Anne Braden made headlines after being arrested in Mississippi for protesting the planned execution of a black man convicted of raping a white woman. In 1952, Ahearn and Carl Braden were among four people who spoke on WLOU radio, saying the Progressive Party's presidential ticket was the only one working for civil rights, peace in Korea, lower prices and higher wages. And in 1954, Ahearn stunned her former friends as the surprise government witness whose testimony as an FBI informant helped send alleged Communist Carl Braden to prison. The next year, a former FBI agent gave her $225, collected from unidentified community leaders, and praised her "conspicuous patriotism" for testifying.

Anne Braden said in an interview last week that she was deeply hurt by Ahearn's testimony. "We certainly thought she was a friend," she said. Carl probably "would have been convicted anyway," because of Marxist/Leninist literature found in his home, she said, but Ahearn's testimony was damaging. As the years passed, Braden, now 70, said, her feelings softened. "I feel very sorry for her, really," she said. "I certainly don't have any bitter feelings toward her. Those were different times. There were such pressures on people to conform to the hysteria of the time. I don't know that anybody came through that period unscathed."
