- SCOPE AND CONTENTS
This series is comprised of Canadian newspaper articles covering St. Jerome's College events and personnel from 1904 to present. The bulk of the records have been taken from several local newspapers (Berlin Daily Telegraph; Berlin News Record; Berliner Journal; Kitchener-Waterloo Record; Waterloo Chronicle; and the Cambridge Daily Reporter) and from several University of Waterloo publications (University of Waterloo Gazette; Imprint; University of Waterloo Courier; and University Affairs). Other articles appeared in religious newspapers (The Canadian Register; Catholic New Times; The Catholic Record; and the Western Catholic Reporter) and in Toronto and national newspapers (The Globe and Mail; The Toronto Star; the Toronto Sun; and The Ensign).
The newspaper articles cover the significant events occurring at St. Jerome's College from 1904 to the present. The articles include a report on the College's Golden Jubilee (1915), the 60th Anniversary (1925), the Diamond Jubilee (1939), and 125th anniversary (1990) plus other special events sponsored by the College such as dinners, banquets, lectures, convocations, the annual Charity Run and fundraising campaigns. There are articles concerning the fire that nearly destroyed the College completely in 1908; the construction of new buildings and additions; dedications and openings; general articles on the history of the College; articles concerning St. Jerome's affiliation with the University of Ottawa and later with the University of Waterloo; articles on events sponsored by the Alumni/Graduates'Association including reunions and the recipients of the Fr. Norm Choate Distinguished Graduate Award; articles on the Centre for Catholic Experience, its annual lecture, workshop and seminar programs; in-depth articles on various guest speakers and their lecture topics; on the launch of Grail (1985) and the awards it won; on new courses being offered at St. Jerome's; on faculty appointments, publications, awards and scholarly pursuits; on administrative personnel changes and appointments; profiles on individual faculty, staff and students; retirements; and deaths.
