The Archives

What’s in the Archives?

The WC Archives are located in Room 312 of West Catholic High School. Begun by Sr. Marie Heyda, O.P. in the early 1980s, the tradition of the Archives is continued today by Pat Nugent.

We occasionally host open houses and displays at school events. You can also arrange a visit to the Archives by contacting Pat Nugent (see contact information at the bottom of this page).

The Archives houses many items
related to the history of West Catholic High Schools.
Items include:

  • photographs
  • yearbooks
  • school newspapers
  • scrapbooks
  • Class Nite programs
  • commencement programs
  • clothing such as varsity sweaters,
    school uniforms, Class Nite costumes
  • ephemera such as spirit buttons,
    footballs,varsity letters, pennants,
    and class rings
archive2 How We Can Help You

  • If you have an upcoming class reunion,
    contact us to discover what memorabilia
    from your high school years is available
    to display at your event.
  • If you are researching your family history
    and have a relative who attended WC,
    we may have photos and other print
    information about that alum.
  • We have an overstock of yearbooks from
    some years and are glad to gift them to you
    at a slight fee. Contact us to see if we have
    the year you’re interested in.
How You Can Help Us

  • The Archives is always looking to grow
    our collection by accepting donations
    from alumni like you. Anything and
    everything you have saved from your
    high school years is valuable to the
    Archives, including dance programs,
    souvenirs, uniforms, trophies, tee shirts,
    scrapbooks, report cards, yearbooks and
    photographs. With your help, we will
    continue to preserve the history of our
    two fine schools.
  • In particular, we need the following
    yearbooks. Do you have one to donate?
