The Santo Collection includes nearly 900 items and is housed at the Dayton Memorial Library. Father Thomas J. Steele, who retired as a Regis College faculty member in 1997, assembled the collection from the mid-1960s until his death in 2010, and the collection continues to grow. A selection of santos from the collection is on display in the library’s third floor gallery whenever the library is open.
Individual objects in the collection are cataloged in the Regis University Digital Repository with extensive information and images.
The Thomas J. Steele, S.J. Santo Gallery dedication and opening reception is on Thursday, October 24, 2013.
