Robert A. Parsons, SJ Papers

Identifier: GTM-GAMMS31

Collection-level Scope and Content Note

Most of the material is that of a Catholic Military Chaplain (1st Lt.) during 1944 at a large Army post and hospital in Florida. Besides routinely saying Mass, most of the work appears to have involved marriage arrangements and baptisms pertaining thereto, and this plus pertinent correspondence comprises the bulk of the collection. There is some material on the provision of religious services to the German P.O.W. camp immediately adjacent. Finally, there are two folders of church marriage registers from 18th century Maryland and Philadelphia, perhaps a family genealogical interest.


  • 1760 - 1946
  • Majority of material found within 1944 - 1945
