CITY STATE.__ ZIP CODE NEAR EAST WELFARE ASSOCIATION THE CATHOLIC career in carving parishes, schools, and hospitals from the frontier environment of Arkansas in the late 19th century. Not only should all Catholics find this book interesting, said Mother Benedicta, but it should prove of value to anyone interested in the history of religion in Ar- kansas, in Southern history, fron- tier history, or the history of immigration.
