At Quincy University

This has been a busy day. I started at Quincy University, a sleepy Franciscan college in the sleepy town of Quincy. Father Tolton studied here at one time.

They have a really good archive of materials about him.

It's a homey little archive. They offer you coffee while you explore the materials. 

After visiting the archives I stopped in the college chapel which is surprisingly grand. It was designed by a Franciscan brother who had no formal training as an architect.
