FOLDER LISTING

DESCRIPTION: Chronologically-arranged letters to, from, and about Loyola College.

Box: 16 Fold: 2 MD PROV COLL: Loyola College, Baltimore: Correspondence, 1929-1956
DATE SPAN: 05/30/1929 - 02/17/1956

DESCRIPTION: General correspondence continued chronologically from preceding folder, except that there is a gap of some eight years from 1921 until 1929, apparently accounted for by the move of Loyola College from Calvert Street to Guilford in Baltimore.

Box: 16 Fold: 3 MD PROV COLL: Loyola College, Balto: Correspondence, 1957-1962
DATE SPAN: 01/31/1957 - 11/19/1962

DESCRIPTION: This correspondence between Loyola College, Balto and Georgetown continues, with most of it being accounted for by Vincent F. Beatty, SJ, Pres of Loyola, and Edward B., Bunn, SJ, Pres of Georgetown. Because Bunn had previously been head of Loyola, some of this is enlightening as it explains the situation at Loyola College at an earlier time when Bunn was there as president. Not only that period, but the years encompassed in this folder, were clearly times when efforts at administrative and fiscal rationalization were underway at both places, and efforts were being made to find out the intent of bequests and gifts, and to bring order into the records.

Box: 16 Fold: 4 MD PROV COLL: Loyola College, Balto: Correspondence, 1963-1968
DATE SPAN: 01/08/1963 - 10/31/1968

DESCRIPTION: Correspondence continues, largely between the presidents of Loyola College and Georgetown. At first it is Rev. Vincent F. Beatty, SJ, pres of Loyola, and Rev. Edward B. Bunn, SJ, pres of Georgetown, but subsequently a number of other faculty and staff members, both Jesuits and laymen, are represented.

DATE SPAN: 10/27/1857 - 11/03/1955

Box: 16 Fold: 6 MD PROV COLL: Loyola College, Balto: Transfer forms, 1918
DATE SPAN: 09/10/1918 - 11/30/1918

DESCRIPTION: Two stacks of forms, roughly fifty in each set, comprise this folder. An accompanying note indicates that in the fall of 1918 Loyola College had insufficient enrollment and transferred the students to Georgetown. One set is the transfer form, giving the student's name and a few other particulars; the other set, with many (or most) of the same names, is from Loyola High and attests that each student named received the fourteen units of training necessary for entry into a "standard" college.

Box: 16 Fold: 7 MD PROV COLL: Loyola College, Balto: Printed Ephemera, 1858-1889

Calvert Bldg., just then expanded.

Box: 16 Fold: 9 MD PROV COLL: Loyola College, Balto: "Mikado" program, 1900
DATE SPAN: 05/22/1900 - 05/22/1900

DESCRIPTION: Printed on tissue, this fragile program is more an artifact than a printed document. It was apparently printed on imported, Japanese tissue carrying woodblock decorative elements in blue and red, with some space left for the program. Added by a local printer is the usual program information and advertising.

Box: 16 Fold: 10 MD PROV COLL: Loyola College, Balto: Printed Ephemera, 1900-1910
DATE SPAN: 05/09/1900 - 06/01/1910

DESCRIPTION: Printed material and newspaper clippings about Manresa.

Box: 18 Fold: 1 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Catalog, 1634-1806
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1634 - 12/31/1806

DESCRIPTION: This folder contains a partly-mimeographed, party-typed transcription of the "Catalog of Members of the Maryland Mission of the Society of Jesus, 1634-1806," in other words, the Society in North America before a province was created. It is bound within boards, indexed, and carries the notation that it (perhaps the index only) was done in 1949 from notes left by Rev. John A. Morgan, SJ. This copy contains a few handwritten corrections or supplements, along with added bibliographical citations or cross-references. The work is organized one page per year, subdivided by location, with names of Jesuits for each, thus it contains about 175 lvs.

Box: 18 Fold: 2 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Catalog, 1634-1806
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1634]? - [12/31/1806]?

DESCRIPTION: This is a second copy of the preceding except that it has no index, annotations, and is not bound.

Box: 18 Fold: 3 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Catalog, 1805-1874
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1805]? - [12/31/1874]?

DESCRIPTION: This folder holds a bound ledger-type volume of medium-size format which contains four MS lists: 1) those who took simple vows after two years in the novitiate (1805-1837), 2) those who went to the rank of "professed," taking vows 3 or 4 (1806-1868), 3) fathers who were admitted in Europe and sent to the U.S. (1805-1840), and 4) those who entered as novices in the U.S. (1806- 1874). In addition, there is a typed transcription from about 1900 of list 2.

Box: 18 Fold: 4 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Catalog fragments, 1827-1857
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1827 - 12/31/1857

DATE SPAN: 01/01/1806 - 12/31/1852

Box: 18 Fold: 6 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Catalog, English fathers, 1634-1805
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1634 - 12/31/1805

DESCRIPTION: This is a ledger, bound with boards, containing two MS lists: English Jesuit fathers who came to "these parts" from 1634 up 'til 1790, and a list of those who died on the American mission from 1630 until 1805. The latter provides names and places, but rarely the cause or age before 1800. Most deaths, when location and cause are given, follow a pattern. However, there is the occasional drowning, or death in a faraway place, e.g., on the Mediterranean, in Mexico, or in Rio de Janeiro.

Box: 19 Fold: 1 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Copy of preceding
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1632 - 12/31/1874

DESCRIPTION: This is a bound, ledger-style volume containing an 1898 copy of the material in the previous folder (18-6) -- the necrology and list of English fathers.

Box: 19 Fold: 2 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Roothan ltr re Sacred Heart, 1848
DATE SPAN: 03/01/1848 - 04/30/1848

DESCRIPTION: This is a seven-page printed letter from Jan Roothaan, the Jesuit General, in Avenione (Avignon?), to all Jesuits, concerning the Cult of the Sacred Heart. Elicited by the difficulties of 1848, the letter is bound within boards, as a measure of its importance. Accompanying is a translation into English of about the first half.

Box: 19 Fold: 3 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: List of entering novices, 1860-1874
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1860 - 12/31/1874

DESCRIPTION: This is a ledger-type indexed volume bound in boards that lists the entering novices in Maryland from 1860 through 1874. Providing much better information than that usually given, it is a potentially useful demographic source. It contains the date, birthdate, place of birth, parents names and whether living or not, number of siblings, education, trade or apprenticeship (if any), sometimes trade of father and misc. information. A later hand sometimes described the results of entering the Society--death or dismissal, and sometimes the reasons--ill-health, craziness, unfitness, etc. A few were subsequently very successful.

Box: 19 Fold: 4 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Novice Evaluations, 1830-1851
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1830 - 12/31/1851

DESCRIPTION: This is a ledger-type book bound within boards that is labelled "Examinis Generalis Novitiorum." Each person has about one page of information--ranging from the merely descriptive name, date, and so forth, through evaluative and subjective information--health and reputation of parents, heredity, health of novice, and his vocation for the religious life.

Box: 19 Fold: 5 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: "Jubilee...", 1883
DATE SPAN: 04/17/1883 - 04/17/1883

DESCRIPTION: This is a printed, soft-cover booklet of 94 pages entitled, "Jubilee of the New York Maryland Province, S.J., Celebrated at Woodstock College, April 17, 1883." Published at Woodstock, it contains a program of the activities, some poems, and a history of the Privince including the reprinting of Roothaan's letter establishing the Province in 1833.

Box: 19 Fold: 6 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: MS history of novitiate
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1900]? - [12/31/1910]?

DESCRIPTION: This MS is by Rev. Edward I. Devitt, SJ, and a shortened, softened, and altogether milder version of it appears in "Woodstock Letters," in 1934. This MS provides a less varnished account of the difficulties of getting novices into the Society in the U.S. in the early nineteenth century, keeping them in it, and keeping them alive.

Box: 19 Fold: 7 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Devitt MS History of Novitiates
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1920]? - [12/31/1922]?

DESCRIPTION: This is a typescript by Rev. Edward I. Devitt, SJ, of the article on the history of the novitiates in the Province of Maryland published in "Woodstock Letters" in 1934. It is apparently his brief version of the longer, handwritten account in the immediately preceding folder.

Box: 19 Fold: 8 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: General History, ca 1790-1815
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1790]? - [12/31/1815]?

DESCRIPTION: This is a bound volume in which there appear to have been copied sometime in the mid-nineteenth century earlier MS, minutes, and misc notes from 1790-1815, some by Abp John Carroll. The volume is something of a pot-pourri, making it difficult to verify the accuracy and value of its contents.

Box: 19 Fold: 9 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Transcriptions, ca 1786
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1880]? - 01/28/1896

DESCRIPTION: The folder contains two different versions of the proceedings of a General Chapter meeting of 13 November 1786, one supposedly copied by Rev. John Gilmary Shea, SJ, and the other by Rev. J. Havens Richards, SJ. The two transcripts begin the same, but soon diverge.

Box: 19 Fold: 10 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide Mat'l: Necrology, 1942-1955
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1942 - 12/31/1955

DESCRIPTION: The folder contains a variety of miscellaneous sheets describing the deaths of certain Jesuits of the Maryland Province during this period. Some are standardized forms, other press releases, and others are brief obituaries, typed or MS.

Box: 20 Fold: 1 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide: Workshop Proceedings: Teaching Religion
DATE SPAN: 08/21/1950 - 08/26/1950

DESCRIPTION: This is a mimeographed book, or series of lectures, the "Proceedings of the Workshop of College Teachers of Religion," Maryland Province, given at Georgetown. The conference held two sessions per day for six days, covering such matters a syllabi, texts, and techniques as applied to ten or so subjects usually taught college students in relgion courses.

Box: 20 Fold: 2 MD PROV COLL: Province-Wide: Maryland Province Bulletin" 1967-1970
DATE SPAN: 05/11/1967 - 09/16/1970

DESCRIPTION: These are 3-4 page mimeographed bulletins issued at irregular intervals (approximately once per month), apparently to provide more rapid and ephemeral news than "Woodstock Letters" (still being published at that time) provided. This run is from No. 6 through No. 40, with 7 and 9 missing.

Box: 20 Fold: 3 MD PROV COLL: Miscellaneous: Piscataway, MD (Prince George's Co.)
DATE SPAN: 06/17/1955 - 06/17/1955

DESCRIPTION: The folder consists of one clipping that describes new boundaries for St. Mary's Church, Piscataway, MD. It had been a mission of St. John's, Clinton, MD, also in PG County, and in yet earlier times the hierarchy was reversed, and Piscataway was the seat of the parish in which Clinton fell.

Box: 20 Fold: 4 MD PROV COLL: Miscellaneous: Deer Creek, MD (Harford Co.)
DATE SPAN: 10/26/1889 - 06/30/1968

DESCRIPTION: The folder holds a variety of MSS, letters, and printed histories of what is most often called St. Joseph's Mission, Deer Creek, Harford Co., MD. (There is some anachrononism in this because the mission was founded before Harford Co. was created from part of Baltimore Co.)

Box: 20 Fold: 5 MD PROV COLL: Miscellaneous: Ward's Island, New York
DATE SPAN: 05/22/1951 - 06/06/1951

DESCRIPTION: The folder contains only two items, both printed--a 1923 booklet celebrating St. Joseph's Golden Jubilee, and a 1951 clipping. The booklet reprints pertinent letters from the 1870 in extenso.

Box: 20 Fold: 6 MD PROV COLL: Miscellaneous: Fort Hill Villa, Lloyd's Neck, NY
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1890]? - [12/31/1920]?

DESCRIPTION: These are two pages of what are generally called "Barnum's Notes." In this case he reveals what happened with the ill-fated Fort Hill Villa, near Oyster Bay, NY, that the Province purchased in 1871 for vacation purposes, but which it had soon to give up.

Box: 20 Fold: 7 MD PROV COLL: Miscellaneous: School Ledger & Notebook, 1855-1870
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1855 - 12/31/1870

DESCRIPTION: This is a bound volume of medium-size format, untitled and unsigned. From internal evidence it appears to be from papers left at Georgetown by a Jesuit who had taught in Philadelphia. There is a school ledger for 1855-56 showing payments of parents for their children; in addition, there are some poems in English on Woodstock and Inkerman (Crimean War), and some Latin notes on a lecture, "De Matrimonio." There is also an index to what is apparently a Jesuit manual of authority.
