St. Vincent’s Free School

Working with a conservator in Gettysburg, we have restored two ledgers of school students from the St. Vincent’s Free School dating from the 1890s!file1-27

The St. Vincent school was founded in 1843 at the request of Father George Carroll, S.J., and operated from 1843-1909.  The collection contains records related to the running and administration of the school.

Of particular interest for this collection is the number of student logs, like the ones we just had conserved, which have survived.


This collection therefore is a valuable resource for genealogists looking for relatives in the St. Louis area.

A finding aid for this collection is now available!  Please contact us for more information or to utilize these valuable records for local or family history!
