Two branches of the Jesuit order have released the names of their priests accused of sexually abusing minors, dating back more than 60 years. A former McQuaid Jesuit High School principal is on that list.
Cornelius Carr was principal of McQuaid from 1960-to-1964. He was from Buffalo, and left the school to become provincial supervisor of the Jesuits in Buffalo. He later taught at a Catholic school in New Orleans, where a student has accused Carr of sexually abusing him while he was in his early teens. Carr went on to teach at schools in Florida.
McQuaid has responded with a statement that also names another priest: the Reverend Roy Drake, who taught math and science at the school from 1957-to-1960. Allegations were raised against him after he left McQuaid and was teaching at Fordham Preparatory School in New York City in 1969. He died in 2008.
A McQuaid Spokesman says the school has no record of either priest committing sexual or any other misconduct while at McQuaid.
