Scope & Content: This small collection documents the research and writings of Sr. Julie Pintal, OP, who focused her scholarship on two Franco-Americans from Fall River, MA, Judge Hugo A. Dubuque (1854-1928) and Philippe-Armand Lajoie (1887-1964). There is limited research for both men in the collection, newspaper clippings of Lajoie’s column “Ça et là,” and most importantly, the unpublished manuscripts for both men’s life and bibliography. Pintal went to extra length to transcribe noted writings by Dubuque and Lajoie, which are also included in the collection.

It should be noted that the Institute’s collection includes a number of Franco-American newspapers from the New England region. Most consist of bound copies and nearly all have been microfilmed.
