A Day in the Life: Student Life Through the Years – A Day in the Life is a new series of digital exhibits created by the staff of the College of the Holy Cross Archives and Distinctive Collections on the ArcGIS StoryMaps platform. These exhibits provide the viewer with snapshots of life at Holy Cross during different decades. The photographs, videos and other archival materials used to enrich this experience are drawn from archival collections. We have chosen to begin our historical tour of Holy Cross with the 1940s to highlight a promotional video that was digitized in 2020.
Mapping Holy Cross – Mapping Holy Cross is a digital mapping project created to document the development of College Hill since the founding of Fitton Academy in 1836. At that time, the land was owned by Rev. James Fitton, the first Catholic priest of Worcester. In 1843, he donated the land to Bishop Benedict Joseph Fenwick, who started the College of the Holy Cross.
Project Q+ – Established in 2016, Project Q+ serves as a digital repository for all LGBTQIA+ Holy Cross related materials. Digital images of artifacts range from newspaper articles to t-shirts to stickers.
