SBM.16b02 Sister Grace McDonald, author of centennial community history, WITH LAMPS BURNING 1957
FIRST 5O YEARS OF THE COLLEGE OF SAINT BENEDICT (CSB)
Sister Grace McDonald contributed an immeasurably important service to the community in gathering and researching the materials that led to her publishing the story of the first 100 years of the community. Without her notes and the materials she collected over a period of many years, the archives would not have the records of the community's development that it now enjoys. Though she kept no administrative files as an archivist, she is considered the first community archivist (from 1933 to 1963) because of her role as collector, researcher and writer.
