Richard J. "Tim" Unsworth

Richard J. "Tim" Unsworth, a former principal of Brother Rice High School who became the unofficial voice for liberal Chicago Catholics, died Wednesday, April 30, 2008 after a long illness. He was 78.

Mr. Unsworth also wrote six books and was an administrator at three Chicago-area universities, a columnist for the National Catholic Reporter for 24 years and a frequent guest on Chicago television stations as a commentator on Catholic issues.

"He had a wonderful sense of humor, and he took delight in the church, the local church especially," said William Kenneally, a retired Catholic priest and longtime friend. "He had a stage to present that (through his column), and his books were wonderfully written."

Mr. Unsworth was born in 1929 in Canton, Ohio, and got his start as a columnist when he wrote a letter to Joseph Bernardin, just as Bernardin was about to take over as Chicago's archbishop.

Mr. Unsworth's wife, Jean, sent a copy of the letter to the National Catholic Reporter, which printed it on its front page and hired Unsworth as a columnist.

The son of a bakery superintendent, Mr. Unsworth attended Iona College in New Rochelle, N.Y., and Fordham University and obtained a master's degree in Spanish in Saltillo, Mexico. He joined the religious order Christian Brothers of Ireland and in 1967 was named principal of Brother Rice, 10001 S. Pulaski Road, Chicago.

He left the order to marry Jean Morman Unsworth, a former member of the Sisters of Mercy, in 1970. Mr. Unsworth led the alumni and development offices of DePaul University from 1970 to 1979 and at the University of Chicago for about a year and the former Northwestern University Dental School from 1981 to 1987.

After hip replacement surgery in September 2006, Mr. Unsworth suffered a massive infection and never regained his health.

Mr. Unsworth also is survived by a brother, Robert, and several nieces and nephews. A memorial service followed by a dinner will be held at 2 p.m May 25 at St. Clement Church, 642 W. Deming Place, Chicago.
