Subject: Dorothy Day Text Project

Marquette University has begun scanning the published
works of Dorothy Day (1897-1980), founder of -The Catholic Worker-.
Day's writings have also appeared in the -The Commonweal- and in
more than thirty other periodicals and seven books she had written
in the period, 1924-1963. Day is particularly well known for her
leadership in the Catholic Worker movement which she and Peter
Maurin founded in New York City in the l933. Since then the
movement has spread nationally. Marquette is the repository and
research center for the archives of Dorothy Day and the CW
movement. Permissions are being sought to include all of the
writings in a fully tagged, word searchable file.

Marquette is seeking extra-mural funding for the
initiation of a major electronic text archive that will go beyond
the present project on Dorothy Day and that will eventually include
the finding aids to the records of various Catholic Indian missions
and schools, to the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions archives and
the Marquette index to the post Vatican II publications of the
United States Catholic Conference and the National Conference of
Catholic Bishops. The full texts of selected out of print
publications from the USCC output will also be included in this

The first six issues of -The Catholic Worker- are being
treated as a prototype project for testing the organization of the
work, SGML\TEI tagging, indexing (using Data Retrieval, TextBOOK)
and access. It is the intent of the project to eventually offer the
text freely and exportable.
