The collection was given originally to the GTU Library in the late 1970's by Daniel
O'Hanlon. It was not officially deeded to the GTU Archives until 1992. Originally in
cardboard cartons, the collection was reboxed and moved at least twice by different
library staff persons when the library was moved, and again during a later construction
phase of the library. Because of the moves, the original order of the collection was
destroyed. I began discussions about the papers and his organization of and intention for
them with Father O'Hanlon, but his sudden death left me to reconstruct an organization as
close to his as possible. He had labeled several file folders, but also had great amounts
of loose material without any headings. Wherever possible I have retained his file folder
headings. The loose unheaded materials are organized as closely as I could to the common
subject any given stack presented. The daily proceedings begin with Session II, 1963. I
have made the overall organization of the collection chronologically: beginning with 1)
1962, 2) moving through the sessions II-IV, 1963-1965, 3) then the collected material
about each "document" for discussion and action at the Council, and 4) finally, all the
material having to do with post-conciliar issues and follow-up.
Daniel O'Hanlon, S.J. (1919-1992) entered the Jesuit Order in 1939, and was ordained in
1952. He studied in Rome and Tubingen, receiving his S.T.D. in Fundamental Theology from
the Gregorian University, Rome, 1958. Post Doctoral work included a semester with Rudolph
Bultman at Syracuse, and a semester with Paul Tillich at Harvard. He began teaching at
Alma College in 1958. He came to Berkeley when Alma College moved to join the GTU and
became the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley in 1966. He was Professor Emeritus at
JSTB at the time of his death in a car accident in 1992.
