Historical Note

Established as a Vatican chartered graduate and research center, The Catholic University of America (CUA) officially opened as an institution of higher education in 1889. New York and Philadelphia had been considered as possible sites but the nation's capital, with its national and political importance, was chosen on sixty six acres of land incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1887. Bishop John J. Keane of Richmond, Virginia, was appointed rector of the new institution with the original curriculum consisting of philosophy, literature, and various branches of theology. In 1900, CUA was among fourteen institutions offering doctoral instruction that formed the Association of American Universities.

In the twentieth century CUA is a private and coeducational university with about seven thousand students almost equally divided between graduate and undergraduate. There are twelve schools: architecture and planning, arts and sciences, canon law, engineering, law, library and information science, Metropolitan College, music, nursing, philosophy, social service, and theology and religious studies with about seventy bachelor's programs, one hundred master's programs, and about 60 doctoral programs. The Archbishop of Washington is the Chancellor of CUA and there is a forty eight person Board of Trustees, which includes twenty four clerics. There have been fifteen presidents (known as rectors until 1968), three of them laymen including the current president (since 2010) John Garvey.

CUA added undergraduate education in 1904 and the first yearbook, known as The Cardinal Yearbook, was created in 1916. It has been published ever since though it was on hiatus for a few years, 1918-1919 and 1944-1947, due to the world wars. It has also changed size and shape a few times though it has on average been about nine by eleven inches and two hundred fifty pages.

Scope and Contents

The CUA Archives generally retains three copies of each yearbook, though with some extrac copies for certain years. A reference set is kept in the Archives reading room for ready asscess while the other two copies are shelved in the Archives stacks area. There are 90 volumes for 1916-2011 though volume 51 for 1972 has two separate parts.

In 2012-2013, the WRLC Digital Practices Committee completed a consortium-wide digitization project, preserving the yearbooks of all the member institutions in digital form. These were scanned for digital preservation into the TIFF lossless format, and PDFs have been created for public access. There are links in the volume record below to these digital copies.
