Fr. Anselm Maynard Keefe: The Legacy

This website and exhibit were created for my Digital Project in my Technologies of Text course, taught by Dr. Ryan Cordell at St. Norbert College. Using materials from the Center of Norbertine Studies, our class worked to create many different digital projects about the Norbertines and St. Norbert College. I chose to focus on Fr. Anselm Maynard Keefe because I'm a biology major, and found the idea of a Norbertine biologist interesting.

I started out my project by contacting the St. Norbert College Science Department Faculty to inquire about Fr. Keefe's materials. With time and patience, I was able to meet with Dr. Jason Mills, the Botany professor of St. Norbert College. He granted me access to the SNC Herbarium and all of its items for this project, including many of Fr. Keefe's materials. I also was allowed to use historical photographs from the Center of Norbertine Studies: Premonstratensian Research website for my project. Their website can be found here.

I used my own Canon digital camera and the Busch Art Center's color scanner to create digital images of the Herbarium, Science Discovery Center, and Fr. Keefe's materials. They were edited for image quality using PhotoFiltre.

Here you can find information about Fr. Keefe and his legacy in six different sections: Fr. Anselm Maynard Keefe, St. Norbert College Herbarium, Pressed Plant Specimens, Plant Exchange Correspondence, Fr. Keefe's Scientific Journals, and JMS Science Discovery Center. They each contain image galleries, and descriptions of these images can be found in their Dublin Core.
