Overview

The records of the volunteer organization Women's Guild of Seton Hall University.

Biographical / Historical

Rev. Monsignor John L. McNulty, president of College of Medicine and Dentistry, dreamed of an organization devoted to service to the young men and young women of the State of New Jersey attending the new College of Medicine and Dentistry in the form of financial assistance. Established in 1956 and comprising wives and mothers of students, and other women who were interested in joining, the Women's Guild of Seton Hall University raised money for grant funds for those students who were going on to the study of Medicine and Dentistry. Father William Noé Field served as moderator and guided the Women's Guild from the beginning. The foundational Guild President was Mrs. Frank Forte and the honorary Chairman was Rev. Monsignor John. L. McNulty. The Women's Guild of Seton Hall University dissolved in 2000.
