This guide highlights primary and secondary sources available in the Georgetown University Archives for research on Dahlgren Chapel which was consecrated on June 9, 1893. Many of these sources relate to the construction or design of the building. Where these resources are available online, this is indicated. However, researchers should anticipate spending much more time working with physical records than with digital surrogates. Use the links to the left to navigate through the content of this guide.
The University Archives are part of the Booth Family Center for Special Collections and are found on the 5th floor of Lauinger Library. The Booth Family Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Reference inquiries may be made in person, by telephone (202-687-7631), via our email formor via the chat feature on Booth’s homepage.
