Providence College Phillips Memorial Library is pleased to present for the Fall 2018 semester new library exhibits drawn from the
College’s Special and Archival Collections held by the Phillips Memorial Library.
In Honor of the Reverend Aloysius Basil Begley, O.P.
who dedicated 31 years of service to the College, many of which were spent building the College’s athletic programs. Appointed as the Athletic Director in 1940, under Fr. Begley’s guidance the College’s athletic program grew by leaps and bounds to include hockey, track, X-country, tennis, soccer, as well as other sports such as golf. Leading the “Friars” to victory in the N.I.T. basketball championships, the hockey team to the Nationals in 1964, the X-country team to the New England Championship three years in a row and the golf team to the National Championships three times, Fr. Begley put Providence College permanently on the collegiate athletic map.
Please join us as we celebrate this noted Providence College Dominican who received numerous accolades for his dedication to the PC community.
