Display Area

The Archives office is divided into two sections. The main room contains changing displays of artifacts that tell the story of Immaculata University. The artifacts, housed in glass-front cabinets, directly pertain to the history of Immaculata. Some examples of the materials include:

  • History of the establishment of the Immaculata post office.
  • Letters from Rose Kennedy, St. Katharine Drexel, and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
  • Display of early Immaculata rings and pins as well as awards given to Alumnae/i
  • Mementos of various Immaculata anniversary celebrations
Historical Document Room

The historical records of the institution are preserved in a separate, climate-controlled room. These documents include scholarly writings of faculty members; past copies of the Gleaner, Immaculata’s yearbook; the Immaculatan, Immaculata’s newspaper; and memorabilia from each of Immaculata’s presidents. Each academic department has an area which houses information concerning the department’s events.

There is a special collections section containing copies of rare Bibles, which were donated to Immaculata by a benefactor. Some recent additions are first edition copies of distinguished writers and illustrators in the field of children’s literature. The authors include Dr. Seuss, Frank Baum (The Wizard of Oz books), and Robert Lawson.
