Henry Francis Bowers

Date of Birth : 1837
Date of Death : Jan 1, 1911

Henry Francis Bowers was the founder of the American Protective Association in Clinton, Iowa. It was staunchly politically anti-Catholic. Henry Bowers, an attorney, objected to Catholic involvement in politics. He paradoxically held friendships with Catholics within his community. His demands for Catholics to remove themselves from politics, was because he saw Catholics as having dual loyalties. To Bowers they could not be both loyal to the United States and a pope in Rome.
