Collection Description
The collection consists of scrapbooks compiled by archdiocesan staff, by local clergy, and by a lay organization, the Catholic College Women's Club. Several volumes are collections of sample printed forms and form letters, kept by the Archbishop's staff for reference. Others consist of clippings and ephemera documenting organizational activities, public events, and political/social issues of concern to the Catholic Church.

Volumes with content wholly or partially relating to Newark are as follows:

Three volumes documenting activities of the Catholic Women's College Club (1939-1947, and 1963-1964)

One volume of clippings documenting the death and funeral of Archbishop Walsh (1952). The funeral mass was celebrated at St. Patrick's Cathedral and burial was in the crypt of the still unfinished Sacred Heart Cathedral.

One volume of clippings and ephemera documenting the Archdiocese's School for Workingmen, Newark. The school, opened in 1942, was directed by Msgr. Ralph J. Glover and offered lectures and classes on public speaking, the Church's teaching on labor issues, and related subjects. Classes were open to men and women and were not restricted to members of unions, although several local unions publicized and otherwise supported its program. The school was still in operation in 1947.
