News from the Archives: Stokes and Mary’s Gardens Collection Now Available

By Jillian Slater

The Marian Library is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new archival collection. The John Stokes and Mary’s Gardens Collection was donated to the Marian Library in 2013 by the late John Stokes, Jr. and family. The collection has recently been processed and made available for research. The Marian Library is excited to provide access to this rich collection that includes the personal papers and research of John S. Stokes, Jr. and the records of his organization, Mary's Gardens.

For a full description of this collection, see the Guide to the John Stokes and Mary's Gardens collection on eCommons.

Additionally, several photographs and documents from the collection have been digitized and are also available on eCommons (ecommons.udayton.edu/imri_stokes_photos).
