The Library recently held a party to honor Sr. Jeanne Crapo, University Archivist. In the Springer Suite a large crowd of well-wishers enjoyed refreshments and shared stories about Sr. Jeanne’s many contributions to the University. Speeches were given by Bella Gerlich, University Librarian, University President Donna Carroll and former Library Director Inez Ringland. The Library presented Sr. Jeanne with a wall hanging that includes an icon portrait of St. Francis de Sales, patron saint of authors. This gift is especially meaningful as Sr. Jeanne is moving on to a new stage in her professional life – author. Sr. Jeanne is writing a book about the history of Dominican University.
At the party Sister Jeanne encouraged the faculty and staff to “Think Archives” and contribute their publications, lectures, institutional records, materials related to student activities and organizations, and any other materials that may be of value to the archives. Lists of many of these materials are now available on the University’s Archives web site. Click here to see more photos.
We wish Sr. Jeanne well in her new endeavors.
