Forming the Archives


A special treat will be found in reading an article written by Sr. Bernadette Kirn on the creation of the Archives. Sr. Bernadette was the Wheaton Franciscan’s first Archivist and she tells the story of establishing the Archives in a lively, humorous way.

A “Before” and “After” picture will demonstrate the overwhelming task Sr. Bernadette undertook and that still blesses us today.
