Archives and Collections
Marymount High School is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls, and was founded in 1923 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary. While the school has played a singular role in local history, it has maintained an inter-related history with many other Marymount institutions, both in Southern California and around the world. Created in 2003 to coincide with the school's 80th Anniversary, the Archive collects, preserves, and exhibits historic items and materials related to the institution and an extended family of administrators, faculty, staff, students, parents, and alumnae. Housed within the Marian Library on a campus designated as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 254, the Archive serves as the collective memory of the institution and seeks to enable those interested in seeing and interpreting Marymount history through its modest collections of multi-media.
