Cooper Union and Marriage, Legal and Religious

Two related questions:

1. What are the current laws about marriage between a godparent and godchild in the catholic church? I found a few sources that say that it used to be unlawful, but is now allowed, some that say it's not technically legal, but dispensations are sometimes granted, and some that say it's unthinkable. I'm hopelessly confused.

2. If a man granted legal custody of a fourteen year old girl (in her parent's will) wished to marry her two years later, when she would be sixteen, what would be the procedure?  I know that those under 18 must receive approval of a superior court judge, or parental consent, but would that  be different in this situation? It's set in present day California.

Searched: Legal guardian AND marriage, Guardianship AND marry, California legal code, California marriage law, catholic marriage AND godparents, catholic marriage AND spiritual affinity, catholic marriage AND impediments, catholic marriage AND relationship, etc.

Totally unrelated;
3. I would actually think this would be easy to find, but no. I'm looking for the admission requirements for Cooper Union (School of the Arts) in the 1930s. I can find a boatload of information on what the requirements are <i>now</i>, but almost nothing on historical requirements. I'd hate to use something totally anachronistic.

Searched: Cooper Union website, Cooper Union AND entry AND historical, Cooper Union AND history, Cooper Union AND admission AND Arts, etc.

I'd be grateful for even some new ideas about what to search. Thank you so much.
