Edward Renehan

Edward Joseph Renehan (1893-1953) was an American banker, a supporter Irish independence, and a benefactor of the American Irish Historical Society. A senior vice president in the New York City offices of the Corn Exchange Bank, he was brother-in-law to Tammany Hall leader and congressman James H. Torrens and a first cousin to the politician, attorney and actor Dudley Field Malone. Renehan was noted for his many gifts to St. Patrick's College, Maynooth (County Kildare, Ireland) where his great-uncle, the Rev. Dr. Laurence F. Renehan, 1797-1857, had been President in the 1850s. He was also for many years an officer in the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick and the Ancient Order of Hibernians. As a young man, Renehan served as secretary to Irish American attorney and politician William Bourke Cockran.
