DOROTHY DAY-CATHOLIC WORKER COLLECTION
AMMON HENNACY PAPERS, 1915-2001

The Ammon Hennacy Papers are composed largely of correspondence and writings he stored with a friend before joining the New York Catholic Worker community in 1952; these items were later obtained by his widow, who donated them to Marquette University. Other collections of his papers are held by the Labadie Collection at the University of Michigan and  the University of Utah. Of note as well are his many letters to Dorothy Day, in Series D-1 of the Dorothy  Day Papers.
