Thank you for your recent inquiries concerning Seton Hall University during the early 1960s. Below you will find answers and/or appropriate leads to each of your questions.
Q: Where can I view a seton hall university yearbook from 1960?
A: We have the Seton Hall University annual (known as "The Galleon") from 1960 in the Archives & Special Collections Center located on the first floor of Walsh Library that can be viewed on-site by appointment during business hours (Monday-Friday, 9-5). In addition, we have a copy in our Reference Collection located on the second floor of Walsh Library (call number: LD4931 .S27) if you wish to follow this route. Here is more information regarding Summer hours for the Main Library - http://www.shu.edu/academics/libraries/hours.cfm
Q: Were all professors at Seton Hall University members of the clergy back in 1961?
A: No, there was a mix of clergy and laity depending upon department and subject matter taught at the school. However, most instructors at the Immaculate Conception Seminary (Darlington) were teaching priests during this period.
Q: Do you have online access to faculty profiles from 1961?
A: Unfortunately, we do not have an online database of faculty members from this time period at the present time. If there is a particular individual(s) of interest, a search through our traditional reference sources can gladly be conducted to determine any content we may have on that person(s).
Please feel free to follow-up with me regarding any specifics you have in regard to further details, other aspects of school history, and/or to set up an appointment.
