Originally part of the Chicago Province, the Detroit Province was founded in 1956. The province encompassed the entirety of Michigan, the majority of Ohio, and maintained the northern half of the Patna Mission in India. The Chicago and Detroit Provinces were united in January 2011.
The Detroit Province Archive was transferred to the Midwest Jesuit Archives in 1996.
The Detroit Province Archive is arranged in three record groups:
RG 1: Government of the Province
RG 2: Personnel in the Province
RG 3: Location of Ministries in the Province
