LECTURE: The Jesuits Come to St. Louis: Saint Louis University’s Ninth and Washington Campus

Join the Camp­bell House Muse­um on Sun­day, August 21st for a lec­ture titled, The Jesuits Come to St. Louis: Saint Louis Uni­ver­si­ty’s Ninth and Wash­ing­ton Cam­pus, pre­sent­ed by John Waide. Saint Louis Uni­ver­si­ty was found­ed in 1818 and ten years lat­er was turned over to the Jesuits who built the first cam­pus down­town on 9th and Wash­ing­ton. Waide will dis­cuss more of the par­tic­u­lars of this “down­town” cam­pus at Ninth and Washington.

John Waide has been an archivist at Saint Louis Uni­ver­si­ty for more than 30 years and brings with him a wealth of knowl­edge on the subject.

All lec­tures are at the Camp­bell House and are free and open to the pub­lic. Reser­va­tions are not required. Lim­it­ed free park­ing in the Muse­um lot, street park­ing is free on Sunday.
