Abstract or Summary
  • St. Joseph's College was located within St. Paul, Oregon, the first Roman Catholic mission in the Pacific Northwest. The St. Paul mission was finally established in 1839 by Father Francois Blanchet, four years after the French-Canadian settlers in the area, appropriately known as French Prairie, had requested the presence of a Catholic priest. On October 17th, 1843 St. Joseph's College was officially dedicated becoming the first boarding school for boys within the Oregon Territory. Two priests, Fathers Antoine Langlois and Jean-Baptiste Zacharie Bolduc alternated as headmaster until the school's closure in June 1849 due to the California Gold Rush. This thesis examines the expansion of the Catholic Church during the development of the Oregon Territory. The daily experiences and activities of the Catholic priests as well as the significance of their institution, St. Joseph's College, is explored through the use of the historical and archaeological record.
