About the Mc-Fadden-Moran Collection for Irish Studies Research
Donated to the Doherty Library by University of St. Thomas board member Mr. Patrick J. Moran and the Moran family, this sizable collection of Irish primary source materials presents a record of Irish politics, history, and culture that primarily covers the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
Composed mainly of newspapers and government documents, the McFadden-Moran Collection for Irish Studies Research serves as a major resource for students, faculty, and researchers.
President Emeritus and History professor Dr. Joseph McFadden has lent his expertise in selecting the materials for the collection.
