NEW ALBANY —
“A lot of people don’t know who Cardinal Ritter was because he moved out of the area after eighth grade,” he said. “A lot of people want to know, ‘Who was this guy?’ They are asking a lot of questions.”
He said the process to complete the house has taken several years because none of the board members were “fundraisers.” Hock also said Ritter would be pleased with the final product.
“He wouldn’t care about the museum. He was all about outreach ... his home has nonprofits who are reaching out to help people,” Hock said. “He would be proud of that.”
