150 Years of Augustinian Tradition and Promise 1842-1992

The present exhibit of Villanova's history was mounted as part of the Sesquicentennial (1992-1993) Celebration. It was originally on view in the Connelly Center (President's Lounge) from 18 September 1992 to 22 September 1993. Each phase of Villanova's history has been introduced by an appropriate quotation from Saint Augustine, patron of the Augustinians who founded Villanova in 1842. The collection was assembled from the resources of the University Archives and from items submitted by university departments, and supplemented by individual contributions. The Web Version of the exhibit is an expansion and update of the original exhibit authored by David R. Contosta, Ph.D. and Reverend Dennis J. Gallagher, O.S.A., Ph.D.

The Villanova University Archives are divided into Cases by History
