These impressive postcards feature the schools, chapels, convents, and people associated with the Religious of the Sacred Heart, the order of nuns who founded the San Diego College for Women at USD. Also known as the Society of the Sacred Heart, this order is “committed to discovering and making God’s love visible in the heart of the world through the service of education.” The Society was established by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat in 1800 and grew to encompass an international network of schools and universities. These postcards document the growth of the Society from 1912 through the 1960s and include messages from students, friends, and relatives.
