About the Center

Volume I of Dominican History Available

RIVER FOREST, IL -- Destined to be a classic source for historians of the presence of Dominicans in the early years of the Order in the United States, Volume I Dominicans at Home in a Young Nation 1786 - 1865 is still available.

The McGreal Center has a limited number of copies and any person, group or organization that has not yet purchased their copy should contact the DLC Office as soon as possible. The opportunity will not last forever.

The project to write the history of the Dominican Order in the USA is being spearheaded by Janet Welsh, OP, Interim Director of the Nona McGreal Center for Dominican Historical Studies at Dominican University.

As the project develops, the McGreal Center will become a research center for the study and research of the Dominican Family in the United Sates. It will also serve the wider academic community interested in the history of religious communities in the United States. Scholars will have access to archival resources that illuminate their study of the theological, historical, sociological and educational role of the Dominican Family in the life of the US Catholic Church and the nation.

You can read the Introduction of Volume I, (PDF) which offers an overview of how the wiriting project came about, participants, contributions, the Forward and Table of Contents.

Sr. Nona McGreal initiated and spearheaded the project of writing the history of the Dominican Family in the USA. Sr. Janet Welsh, OP, Interim Director of the McGreal Center will continue this work.
