DOROTHY DAY-CATHOLIC WORKER COLLECTION
DOROTHY AND WILLIAM GAUCHAT PAPERS, 1930-2001

The Dorothy and William Gauchat Papers contain correspondence and manuscripts documenting their work with the homeless as members of the early Cleveland Catholic Worker community and later at Our Lady of the Wayside, a home they founded for severely disabled children in nearby  Avon, Ohio. Of note are  the extensive file of their courtship correspondence and many letters from Dorothy Day.
