Priest, principal

The Rev. James B. Carey, who retired in 1986 as pastor of St. Margaret's Roman Catholic Church in Bel Air and had been principal of Calvert Hall College and head of the Baltimore Province of the Christian Brothers, died Wednesday at Stella Maris Hospice of complications from a stroke. He was 77.

He attended a Christian Brothers high school in his native Pittsburgh before joining the order in 1930. He earned a bachelor's degree in education and a master's in French at Catholic University. He received an honorary doctorate from De La Salle College in Manila, Philippines.

From 1947 to 1950, he was superior and principal at West Catholic High School in Philadelphia. After holding positions at La Salle University in Philadelphia, he moved to Baltimore in 1962 as superior and principal at Calvert Hall, which he headed until 1966.

In 1969, he left the order of brothers to study for the priesthood in an accelerated program at Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg.

Ordained in 1970, he was associate pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Glyndon until 1973, when he was assigned to St. Margaret's Church.

He was named pastor in 1976.

Father Carey was president of John Carroll High School from 1978 to 1981.

A Mass of Christian burial was to be offered at 10:30 a.m. today at St. Margaret's.

He is survived by three brothers, Joseph Carey and the Rev. Thomas Carey, both of Pittsburgh, and William Carey of Lancaster, Pa.

William Hatton Daniels, 77, who had been a stationary engineer for 30 years at Coppin State College and was employed before his retirement by St. Agnes Hospital, James Lawrence Kernan Hospital and the Blaustein Building, died Aug. 28 of cancer at Union Memorial Hospital.

The Baltimore native also had been a partner in Daniels-Adams Ice Cream Co., designing ice cream molds. He was a graduate of Douglass High School and for many years was a member of St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church.

A memorial service was to be held at 2 p.m. today at Prince Hall Masonic Temple, 1307 Eutaw Place.

He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Gloria Gilliam; two stepsons, Malcolm Gilliam of Los Angeles and Gary Robinson of Baltimore; a stepdaughter, Katherine Belway of Santa Barbara, Calif.; two brothers, Edward R. and Samuel T. Daniels, both of Baltimore; and four grandchildren.
