Welcome to the Raymond C. Baumhart, S.J. digital exhibit. Rev. Baumhart served as Loyola University Chicago's twenty-first president from 1970 to 1993. As the longest serving president at Loyola, Rev. Baumhart implemented many changes and opportunities for growth on all of Loyola's campuses. By 1993, as a result of Baumhart's efforts, Loyola Chicago became a financially stable, nationally recognized university with a research-focused faculty.
This exhibit explores Baumhart's early life, presidency, post-resignation life, and university legacy. Follow the pages on the header bar or click the "next" button below to learn more about Rev. Baumhart.
This project was created by Bianca Barcenas in 2018 with textual and photographic materials from the Loyola University Chicago Archives & Special Collections and the Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club Archives.
