Dominican Archives Book Collection
Dominican Archives Book Collection
The Digital Archives Project is a new initiative of the Center’s that seeks to make a number of texts and manuscripts that were classified as rare or special collections accessible to the entire community at any time. Many of these works have never been viewed by the public before. As a multi-phased project, it seeks to add continually to the collection of the Center by digitizing various works: some include works from Dominican archives across the world and others are important documents and texts for the life of the Church.

Edward P. Doyle, O.P., 1907-1997, a member of the Providence College faculty from 1941-1954. During a leave of absence for military service Father Doyle served as a World War II U.S. Army Chaplain.

Other photographs in the collections show images of Father Doyle throughout his life. The text documents in the collection are from Father Doyle's personal papers and include obituaries, correspondence, clippings, and Providence College-related archival documents.
Providence College Army Specialized Training Program
Providence College Army Specialized Training Program
The national Army Specialized Training Program took place from 1942-1944. It served as a way to educate young, academically talented, soldiers (ages 18-21) for leadership roles within the Army during World War II. ASTP participants gained training in engineering, science, medicine, mathematics, and more. Over 122 institutions across the country hosted ASTP students. Providence College's Army Specialized Training Program began in July 1943 and lasted through April 1944. During the program's short tenure over 500 soldiers from around the country lived and took classes at Providence College. The ASTP Program was important to Providence College as it kept enrollments up during the war. The program concluded nationally when soldiers were needed on the battlefields of Europe as war efforts increased. PC's ASTP collection includes video, photographs, correspondence, newspaper coverage, archival materials, and more. This web site was created by the Digital Publishing Services team at Providence College's Phillips Memorial Library + Commons. The original materials are housed in the library's Special Collections and Archives.
