Close-up of Fr. Monan

Boston College Libraries remembers

On March 18, 2017, J. Donald Monan, SJ, died, and Boston College lost its modern architect. If you are a member of the Boston College community you are a part of Fr. Monan’s vision of what a modern American university should be. As we grieve his loss and do our best to carry his devotion to teaching, scholarship, and building communities into a new era, we hope this small exhibit of Fr. Monan’s activities at Boston College provides context for his enormous contributions to the culture of our University.
