More than 80 years of the historic Catholic Worker newspaper is now available in a newly launched digital collection developed by the Catholic Research Resources Alliance in partnership with Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Department of Special Collections and University Archives.
Founded in 1933, The Catholic Worker is a newspaper published seven times a year by the Catholic Worker community in New York City. The newspaper was started by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin to make people aware of church teachings on social justice and the activities of the community.
The digitized newspaper collection complements a major Catholic Worker/Dorothy Day archival collection held at Raynor Memorial Libraries. It includes the personal papers of Day, Maurin and others involved in the movement; records of past and present Catholic Worker communities; photographs; audio and video recordings of interviews, talks, television programs and peace demonstrations; and a wide variety of publications.
