Fellow Alumni,

The Xaverian Clipper is once again underway – this time into an actual tempest in the form of the Coronavirus storm. True to our tradition, we are well prepared, with a well-trained crew and capable officers at the helm.

Always on the cutting edge, the faculty and student body have been well-versed in mobile technology for many years, so the transition to virtual education, while monumental in scope, was more of an adjustment than a complete retooling. Beginning last spring, and continuing during the summer, everyone became skilled with Zoom and a logistical plan for virtual learning was fine-tuned.

Here at Archives Central, materials continue to be organized with an emphasis on digitizing print documents for future access by all.

New Acquisitions: Mr. John BianRosa ’67, Xaverian’s first Director of Technology,  former French, Italian and Computer ScienceTeacher & Computer Dept. Chairman, Tennis Coach, Black Belt Tae Kwon Do instructor presented the Archives with his original 1967 Graduation Program and two invitations to the ceremony. John also donated a set of slides of the tennis team in the mid-1970's and cloth athletic letters. Thank you John!

COVID Housekeeping?  If you discover any Xaverian memorabilia, print materials, photos, &c. no longer of interest to you, please get in touch - sheiles@xaverian.org   Remember, scans of memorabilia are also welcome.
 
Wishing you, and the important people in your lives, safety and health.
