Description: Contains the personal and official correspondence of Fr Alexander McCabe, who served as Vice-Rector and then Rector of the Royal College of the Irish Nobles in Salamanca during the 1930s and 1940s.

Ecclesiastical correspondents include J.J. Glennon, Archbishop of Dublin, R.J. Fitzgerald, Archbishop of Gibraltar, David L. Greenstock, Rector of the English College at Valladolid, Fr John O'Hara, and Fr John Mulrean.
