Homecoming and Football, 1938

1938 Souvenir Booklets for St. Viator College

The Viatorian Community Archives just received a donation of two St. Viator College souvenir booklets dated 1938.  The gift comes from Mary Newlin, whose father, Adrian Lessard, attended St. Viator College in Bourbonnais and was on the football team.

The Homecoming Program is of particular interest because it is something new for the college collection.  Homecoming was held on Oct. 30 and the football game was  Viator vs. McKendree, a college in Lebanon, IL.  The program cover is signed by numerous students, friends of Lessard.
