    ABSTRACT
    Born on May 17, 1912, Reverend William Noon was a literary scholar who specialized in twentieth century literature. Noon studied philosophy, theology, and literature, and had a particular interest in the relationship of prayer and poetry. He was also recognized as an authority for the author James Joyce, so much that the New York Times once claimed that he was one of the"best professional experts on Joyce." He was the author of Joyce and Aquinas and Poetry and Prayer. The collection contains personal and family papers, photographs, personal and professional correspondence, business records, and draft manuscripts of articles, books, and reviews.

    ABSTRACT
    Rev. Charles J. Beirne was Le Moyne College’s eleventh president, serving from June of 2000 to May of 2007. Beirne was well invested in Central American politics, and served as academic vice president at Universidad Centroamericana in San Salvodor following the murder of six Jesuit priests. During Beirne’s tenure at Le Moyne, he initiated a comprehensive five-year strategic plan, developed a new mission statement, and worked toward the development of an architectural master plan for the campus. The collection includes reflections of his time in Central America, insight in his appointment as president of Le Moyne College, and his accomplishments at Le Moyne.

    BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
    Rev. Charles J. Beirne was born on September 23, 1938. A New Jersey native, he was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1969. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degree from Fordham University and his doctorate in education from University of Chicago. He served as a principal at Regis High School in New York City and Colegio San Ignacio in Puerto Rico; as an associate dean at Georgetown University Business School; and he was an academic vice president at Santa Clara University.

    In 1990, six Jesuit priests, who were close friends of Beirne, were killed while working at Universidad Centroamericana in San Salvodor. Shortly after the murders, Beirne was asked to serve as academic vice president, succeeding the Rev Ignacio Martin Baro, one of Beirne’s close friends whom he spoke to shortly before he was killed. His assignment at the school was risky and dangerous – rebels were at first thought to be blamed for the murders, but it was soon revealed that members of the Salvadoran army were responsible for their deaths. Not intimidated, Beirne sought for the truth behind the murders of his colleagues. Additionally, during his tenure at the school, Beirne served as an advisor to the United States, assisting the U.S. government with readjusting foreign policy that Beirne believed was misguided.

    In 1994, Father Beirne transferred to Unversidad Rafael Landivar, where he was appointed the academic vice president. In 2000, he was appointed by Le Moyne College to serve as president. Beirne was an instrumental force behind revising the college’s mission statement, initiating a Facilities Master Plan, and raising funds as part of a capital campaign. Beirne resigned from Le Moyne College in 2007 to assist establishing the first Jesuit University in Africa.

    SCOPE AND CONTENT
    The Charles Beirne collection is stored in eight archival boxes, and is arranged by subject and chronologically. The collection includes correspondence, newspapers, financial documents, memos, emails, videotape, and audiotape. The documents provide information about his experiences in Central America, his work as Le Moyne College’s administrator, his revision of the college’s mission statement and his development of strategic and master planning, and his political advocacy. Also included in the collection is an audiotape and videotape of interviews with Father Beirne.

    BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
    Edmund Ryan was born December 4, 1928 in Scarsdale, New York to Herbert and Elizabeth Ryan. Ryan entered the Society of Jesus in September of 1946, and was ordained a priest in January of 1959. Academically, he gradated with a B.A. in 1952, a M.A. at the Catholic University in 1962, and completed his Ph.D. at the same university a year later. He also received degrees in Theology from West Baden College (1953) and Woodstock College (1960).

    Ryan had a prolific career as an academic administrator. He had a brief stint as a teacher at the Brooklyn Preparatory in the mid-50s before making college administration a career focus. He began his career as an Academic Dean and Executive Vice President – as well as holding a position of Professor of Psychology and Education -- at St. Peter’s College from 1965-1972. After his tenure at St. Peter’s College he served a short term as an administrator for Georgetown (1972-1974) and a year as President for Seattle College (1975-1976). He subsequently worked as Educational Consultant for Le Moyne College for a year before settling in at Canisius College for 15 years as Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs. When he left Canisius College in 1992 he took a year sabbatical at the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, California.

    Ryan came to Le Moyne College in 1993 to serve as the Special Assistant to the President, assisting then interim president Rev. Robert Mitchell. Throughout his tenure at Le Moyne he also worked as the head of Mission and Planning, Interim Academic Vice President, and Professor of Education. As a Special Assistant to the President he handled government and external relations, oversaw Le Moyne’s AmeriCorp program, and was responsible for the organization of the college’s strategic plan.

    As well as being a college administrator, he was also a founder of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in New Jersey. Additionally, he was a trustee of Fordham and Georgetown universities, and he held an honorary degree from Canisius College. In 1988 he received the Yanitelli Award from the Jesuit Association of Student Personnel (JASPA), and in 1995 he was awarded a Distinguished Service Award by the American Association of University Administrator for his exemplary career.

    Father Ryan died January 26, 2001 in California while visiting his brother.

    SCOPE AND CONTENT
    The Edmund Ryan collection is contained in eighteen archival boxes.

    ABSTRACT
    International House was founded in 1963, and was initiated to serve as an international program for Le Moyne students. At its founding, members lived as a Christian community centered around a residence on campus, and made service trips to assist the underprivileged in the mountains of Mexico. The organization soon became a locus for students who felt passionate about social justice issues both home and abroad. The International House existed into the early 2000s. Contained within this collection are histories, correspondence, House minutes and reports, and articles. The collection also contains separate boxes of various memorabilia and ephemera

    BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
    The International House began as a community of Le Moyne Students who were dedicated to social justice and activism. It was founded in 1963 by seven Jesuits, including peace activist Father Daniel Berrigan S.J. The organization was a Christian community who were concerned with faith, community, and service. Initially, this mission took the International House students to Mexico, where they spent summers working with the Tarascano people of the Mil Cumbres Mountains. In order to prepare for their mission to Mexico the original six I.H. members, and others since, lived together in a house on Foxboro Road. It was here where they trained themselves both academically and spiritually.

    In 1966, after the original founders and members or the house had left, the focus of the group shifted from Mexico to raising awareness of social and political needs around the campus. Under the new leadership of Fr. William Bosch S.J. the House began to devote its efforts to programs in inner city Syracuse such as soup kitchens, over night shelters, tutoring, and Jail Ministry. They also became involved in political issues such as protesting the Vietnam War, draft counseling, organizing and picketing on behalf of the United Farm Workers, and tutoring inner city youth. The international focus continued, however, with social projects conducted in Jamaica as well as Mexico.

    It was also during the year of 1966 that the house found itself under new supervision, a man who would become a mainstay in the International House for thirty years. Fr. William Bosch, S.J. Bosch held the position of moderator (with only a few breaks, due to sabbatical leaves) until his retirement from the House in 1996. It was under his leadership that I.H. made its mark on Le Moyne by bringing awareness to the college about local and world issues. Over the span of three decades, with Fr. Bosch as the moderator, I.H. students were receiving two educations, that of Liberal Arts and Social Justice.

    As the 1960s gave way to the 1970s, IH members continued to not only serve the people in foreign countries (although that was certainly a priority for the House), but also assisted the poor and downtrodden in local communities. The members did service at Unity Kitchen, for example, a Syracuse organization that provided delicious meals to homeless men. It was also during this time that the House organized and sponsored campus movies and lectures series that highlighted feminist issues, church reform, and third world perspectives. Members also conducted fund raising events like food and clothing drives. The House held these events to bring their peers’ attention to the hardships people was facing both locally and globally.

    During the mid-1970s, several requests for co-ed housing at the International House were made. While females were already heavily involved with IH, it was housing policy that women were not allowed to live at the Foxboro Road residence. Citing Title IX - the landmark federal civil rights law that prohibits sexual discrimination in education – several house members argued that it was illegal to prevent females from living at the House. While the College administration was willing to listen to these requests, and even entertained these sentiments, they had doubts that women could safely live in the house. Because of this concern, the administration initially rejected this request. Peg Pavone and Val Rosenquist, dedicated House members, who were unsatisfied with this decision, subsequently made stronger calls for action, and even threatened legal action. Because of the efforts of Pavone and Rosenquist, along with other members, the administration finally changed the housing policy in April of 1978, and the following fall semester women began to live at the House.

    Members who were active in the House were often so moved by their experience that they dedicated their careers and lives to social justice and change. Several members continued the mission of the House by joining organizations with a religious foundation such as the Jesuit Volunteer Corps., Franciscan Volunteer Ministry, Jesuit International Volunteers, United States Peace Corps., and taken vows in different religious orders. Former members have also generously given their time to multiple local Christian organizations, tutoring programs, the United Way, and Viva House in Baltimore. Members have also served their communities by holding public offices.

    In the early 1990s, Father Bosch brought a new focus on Appalachia, which developed a strong connection between IH and places like Nazareth Farm in the impoverished region of West Virginia. There was also work done at St. Francis Inn in inner city ghettos of Philadelphia. These service projects were called “Alternate Breaks” because students volunteered time and effort during their academic vacations. The international focus was not completely lost, though, with service trips, led by Father Al Hennely, S.J., to Jamaica. These missions wouldn’t be possible if there wasn’t any spiritual training, which the House provided by annual retreats at such places like the Le Moyne Villa on Cazenovia Lake. There was also another change during this time; the International House no longer had a separate dormitory. The organization found its new home on campus in the rooms of the former Loyola Hall (currently Mitchell Hall).

    In 1996 Father Bosch transferred control over to Mike Pasquale (’90), an alumni of the house. It was under Pasquale’s tutelage that I.H. again went through another change of focus. It was during this time that the I.H. house experienced high alumni involvement by the creation of two namesakes after former moderators. In the late 90s, the House established the Daniel Berrigan Peacemaker Lecture series and the William J. Bosch, S.J. Scholarship, both of which still exists today. There was also the return to political protest, reminiscent of the Vietnam War in the 60s and 70s. Members were involved with protesting the U.S./Iraq war, and created annual pilgrimages to Fort Benning, GA to protest the Schools of the Americas. Additionally, the house annually attended the Syracuse Crop Walk, which raises awareness to end hunger worldwide. House members also worked with clubs that had a bigger voice on campus, such as Amnesty International, their focus being primarily on social justice.

    Eventually, the mission of the IH was institutionalized, with several departments and clubs taking up the services that IH provided. Consequently, the IH was disbanded in 2004. The work lives on, though, with the work of different departments. The Office of Service Learning, for example, was developed and carries on the tradition of Alternative Breaks, expanding from New Orleans to regions like Africa, Ecuador, and Dominica. These trips are preformed for students who want to get involved and help those both near and far who need it and deserve it. Buzz of the service activity happening here led Le Moyne to receive President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll With Distinction awarded in 2007. This is leading proof that although the International House may no longer by here physically, the mission lives on.

    SCOPE AND CONTENT
    The International House collection is held in 18 archival boxes. Contained within this collection are various types of correspondence, house minutes and reports, applications for house membership, and articles. The collection also contains separate boxes of various memorabilia including mass kits, different artwork, and belongings handed over from members or past moderators. The materials in this collection provide a strong sense of the International House’s missions and accomplishments. It also gives insight into the changing of times with each moderator (Berrigan S.J., Bosch S.J., and Pasquale ‘90) and their strong-willed beliefs, as with each of them the house took a turn in a different direction.
