Marist College: From Brotherhood to Co-Education

Description

This Collection follows the integration of women in 1966 and the years immediately following this drastic change to the once-small preparatory school for the Catholic Brotherhood. Our goal was to analyze, "The Circle," Newspapers in the Marist College Archives to track different events that occurred during and after Marist College became co-educational.
