History: Blessed Mother Marie-Rose Durocher founded the Sisters of the Most Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (now known as the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary) in Longueuil, Quebec, Canada, in 1843. They made their first U.S. foundation in 1859, which led to ministry to Native Americans in Oregon and Washington (e.g. Grand Ronde, Spokane, Washo), 1864-1968, and the development of the United States-Ontario Province.

Unless noted otherwise, the repository named above holds (or held) the records described and not the Marquette University Archives. However, Marquette’s holdings, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records, include related records about these Native and Catholic groups and places.
