Ellen Skerrett is happy to add to the ongoing conversation regarding the storied timeline of 圣依纳爵学院预科. 她说, “John Chandler asked me to write the history of the school…This allowed me to take a deep dive into where the Jesuit Mission in Chicago began in 1857 and continues today!”
Skerrett calls it a privilege to be able to examine original documents and rediscover links to Saint Ignatius. Her most memorable research “find”:
Uncovering the identity of the school’s architect, Hermann von Langen. Skerrett located von Langen’s great grandchildren in California. They later visited 1076 West Roosevelt Road. 她说, “They were surprised and delighted. They knew Hermann had been an architect, but they had no idea of the scope of his career.”
In bringing Wolfpack history to life, Skerrett connects the past to the present…for all of us.
