Sister Ardeth Platte, OP, and Sister Carol Gilbert, OP, donated their collection of newspaper clippings, correspondence, and court documents to DePaul University Special Collections and Archives in multiple accessions.  Originally, these materials were integrated into the Collection on Peace Activism.  However, the size of the most recent donation, given in 2018, necessitates a distinct archival collection which will be known as the Ardeth Platte papers.  Special Collections and Archives anticipates the newly processed collection will be available to researchers by summer 2022.  In the midst of organizing the materials, the story of Platte, Gilbert, and their friend and colleague, Sister Jackie Hudson, OP, emerged a perfect fit for this blog post in which we celebrate Women’s History Month and Catholic Sisters Week:
