Oblasser Collection

Documents in this collection pertain to the friars' work with the Tohono O'odham in Arizona during the 20th century. Updates will be posted periodically as collection work is still in progress. SBMAL would like to acknowledge and thank the American Academy of Franciscan History for the award of a 5-year grant that funded the processing and description of this unique collection.

Oblasser Document Collection

The Oblasser Collection also consists of a book collection. Books in this collection must be requested at least 24 hours before an appointment.
