Library Exhibits

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 Jon Stuart McPhail, O.P.

who dedicated 35 years of service to the College, many of which were mentoring those many students who have walked the hallways of this storied institution.  Everyone on campus knows of McPhail’s Bar in Slavin Center, but did you know it was named after Fr. McPhail?  Come learn why the student body voted to name their favorite gathering place after him and why Fr. McPhail is so beloved around campus.  Providence College is blessed to have this special Dominican influence the lives of so many students who have been fortunate to meet him.   Please join us as we celebrate this noted Providence College mentor who received numerous accolades for his dedication to the PC community.
