Francis X. DeNeckere (1810-1879), entered the Society in 1844. He may have written these meditations.
The John Digges, Jr., SJ Papers consist of sevral manuscripts. None of these manuscripts bear Digges's name, and have been identified by handwriting comparisons with documents in Maryland Province Archives. They probably came into the hands of Baltimore Archbishop Leonard Neale (d. Georgetown, 18 June 1817), and thence to Georgetown. One is bound in an 1815 Baltimore newspaper.
The collection documents some of the writings of French Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin in their original French. The collection contains 14 mimeographs by Teilhard and includes several essay-length versions of his famous "Le Milieu Divin." The Teilhard mimeographs are arranged in alphabetical order. There is also a bit of supplementary material to round out the collection, including obituaries of Teilhard and newspaper clippings about him.
This collection is currently unprocessed and access to it may therefore be limited. Researchers are advised to contact the Booth Family Center for Special Collections for more information on access to this collection.
The collection consists primarily of postcards and photographs collected by Dubalen, a friend of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ.
