Jesuit Archives in the US and Abroad

Jesuit Provinces in the United States have traditionally kept their own archives as extensions of the office of the Socius. The Jesuit Archives & Research Center currently holds the collective memory of twelve past and current administrative provinces of the Society of Jesus in the United States. These twelve include the Buffalo, Central and Southern, Chicago, Chicago-Detroit, Detroit, Midwest, Missouri, New England, New Orleans, New York, Northeast, and Wisconsin Provinces. In 2000, the archives accepted the records of the governing body of the Society of Jesus in the US, the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States. Three provinces continue to maintain their own collections; these provinces include Maryland, California, and Oregon.  For more information about these collections, please use the contact information provided below. We have also provided contact information for the Archives of the House of the Superior General in Rome.
