Portrait, taken August 11, 1934, of Cardinal Alexis Henri Marie Lépicier (front row, second from right) and members of his party at Union Station with some of the people who welcomed them to Portland.

A cropped version of this photograph, along with image No. 371N4213, was published on Page 1 of the Oregon Journal on August 11, 1934. The photographs were published under the headline “Distinguished Catholic Prelate Welcomed to City.” This photograph had the caption: “Opening of the Marian Congress here Sunday brought to the city today many distinguished Catholic clergymen, including Alexis Henry [sic] M.
