Doctoral student seeking stories and materials from archdiocese’s members

To help with some historical research, Michael Skaggs, a doctoral student at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., would like to speak to members of the archdiocese from the 1960s.

He is studying the history of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis during the 1960s, and wants to reach out to those who lived in the archdiocese during that decade.

Skaggs is looking for stories about those members’ experiences, and possibly any materials or items they have saved from the past.

This is an ongoing study. Anyone interested may contact Skaggs at 574-307-8419 or by e-mail at IndyCatholicHistory@gmail.com.
