Monsignor J. Fleming McManus papers
Scope and Contents
The bulk of the collection includes ephemera such as pamphlets from parish jubilees, or cards from priest ordinations or jubilees. However, the remainder of the collection contains substantive materials such as reports of school superintendent, center for human development, various synods, and unpublished parish histories. The highlights of the collection include the unpublished parish histories and the imagery offered by the holy cards for various priests. They may prove useful in identifying priests for whom there are few records.
