Major Mallet’s manuscript collection was purchased by the Union Saint-Jean-Baptiste d’Amérique (now Catholic Financial Life Insurance) in 1917 along with the Major’s personal library.  Catholic Financial Life gifted Mallet’s papers to the d'Alzon Library in December 2012. d'Alzon Library transferred the collection to the French Institute in 2023. Assumption University has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the USJB for many years. The USJB provided monies for the construction of the university's La Maison Française building in 1955, and their funds had an instrumental role in the creation of the French Institute.  Major Mallet’s personal library had been on permanent loan to the d’Alzon Library since 2004, but with the transfer of his personal papers, CFLI also gifted us his book collection in December of 2012.
