Congratulations to our own, Theresa Flanagan Murtagh, who was just elected the first woman president of The Philo.

When Delaware County attorney Theresa Flanagan Murtaugh recently took office as the Catholic Philopatrian Literary Institute’s 77th president, she made history. Founded in 1850, the Philo in its early years had priests as presidents and since 1870 has been headed by laymen.

Murtaugh is the first woman to head the Philo and looking at her resume she is more than up to the task.

She is a board member of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, a member of Legatus, a member of the committee for the Archbishop’s Christmas Benefit, secretary for the Riddle Hospital/Main Line Health Foundation and a board member of the Irish American Business Chamber of Commerce.
