CMS 047 documents the history of the Church of Saint Anthony of Padua of New Haven, Connecticut,from the founding of the parish in 1904 to 1986. Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, newspaper clippings, parish announcement books, parish histories, parish society organizational documents and photographs. The collection is especially strong on the internal activities of the parish and the activities of its Holy Name Society. As Saint Anthony’s was founded to serve New Haven’s Italian community and located in downtown New Haven, the collection supports study of Italian-American and urban history. As the church was staffed by priests from the Society of Saint Charles-Scalabrinians, the collection also supports studies of the history of the order.
