Published histories of Dominic College

There have been a handful of general histories of the Dominic College and its predecessors, Boys' Town, Savio College and Holy Name School.

As with any history, the "facts" presented are by necessity the viewpoint of the author/editor of the articles who has always decided what information to include and omit. As these are documents from their own historical time, the language used is a product of the culture of the author, and information quoted may not be correct or even accurate.

Nevertheless, these are important historical documents and are made available for your interest.
