dc.descriptionLocated in the Pierce Reading Room of the Lauinger Library, the Rev. Joseph T. Durkin, S.J. Collection in American Studies was established by former students and friends of Fr. Durkin. Pictured at the Collection's dedication in the fall of 1974 are Professor Dorothy Brown, chair of the History Department, and Fr. Durkin. Joseph T. Durkin, S.J. (1903-2003) first came to Georgetown in 1938 and spent almost six decades at the university as a dedicated teacher of history. He was a prolific scholar, producing more than 25 books, including biographies of Alexis Carrel and Stephen Mallory, as well as histories of Georgetown University. Fr. Durkin "retired" in 1972, shortly after helping to launch the American Studies Program, but he continued giving tutorials, advising students, participating in student retreats, researching and writing. In his 100th year, he was still visiting Alzheimer's patients in local nursing homes, celebrating mass, and hearing confessions at a detention facility in Arlington, Va.en
