Sister Madeleva Wolff (Mary Evaline Wolff) is synonymous with Saint Mary's College. Indeed, first as a student and later as the College's third President from 1934-1961, Sister Madeleva was instrumental in shaping Saint Mary's into the premier women's college it is today.

In honor of Sister Madeleva's 125th birthday in May, 2012, the Library presents an exhibit focused on her life and accomplishments, including Sister's love of poetry, her many honorary degrees, and a sampling of the individuals whose lives she touched.

Join us in commemorating the birth of this incredible woman whose talents continue to inspire women's leadership and the "teaching of truth," as her legacy lives on today.
