Carroll History Room Now Open

Thursday, August 20, 2020

In October 2020, Corette Library is launching several efforts to commemorate the history of Carroll College and our earliest Saints: 

  • We are excited to announce the opening of the Carroll History Room in the space outside of the Archives and Special Collections in the lower level of the Corette Library and Simperman Learning Commons. This room now houses Carroll print theses, yearbooks, Colors literary magazine, Mount St. Charles' directories, and more print material about Carroll's history.
  • The space features a museum display case and seating for reviewing these historical materials that are only available for use in the building. In our museum case in the Carroll History Room, the Library is showcasing a physical display of historical artifacts and memorabilia from our time as Mount St. Charles' College including items that belonged to Bishop Carroll. This exhibit will run for the remainder of the fall semester. 
  • As part of the Library's Carroll Creates podcast series, we will publish our interview with Dr. Swartout, former Carroll faculty and historian, about his work around researching Carroll's history for the book, Bold Minds and Blessed Hands: The First Century of Montana's Carroll College.

Corette Library's Archives is always looking to add material that belonged to former Saints! 

Please reach out to us at if you have Carroll College (or Mount St. Charles!) memorabilia that you would like to add to our archival collection. We are especially interested in commencement speeches and programs as well as photographs with information about what is pictured.
