Description of Collection: 

Mount St. Mary's College was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in 1925 as the first Catholic women's college west of the Mississippi. It comprises two historic sites, the Chalon Campus high above Brentwood (1930), and the Doheny Campus, which occupies the former estate of Edward and Estelle Doheny, including the Doheny Mansion at 8 Chester Place (1906). The Mount's renowned nursing program, established in 1948, offered the city's first four-year baccalaureate degree in nursing. The Mount is widely respected for its leadership and research in diversity in higher education.
