The Archives Derpartment contains approximately 2,000 linear feet of records including the college archives and the records of the Society of Saint Edmund (SSE), a Roman Catholic religious congregation headquartered at Saint Michael’s College. The Society, which founded Saint Michael’s College in 1904, worked in France, England, Canada, Venezuela, and in many sites across the U.S. including Selma, Alabama, and New Orleans, Louisiana. The Society was founded in Pontigny, France in the 1860s, with responsibility for overseeing Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy until 1901 when the French government forced religious orders to disperse by demanding they relinquish their property and many other rights. The Archives holds a related collection called the Theological Rare Book Collection containing 255 volumes of pre-1800 printed books. The collection includes six incunables or books printed before 1501 and ten books bearing the seal of the SSE library at Pontigny and, overall, it comprises a nice example of a theological, or perhaps monastic, Renaissance library.
