This is the third volume of the history of the New York Province of St. Elias, a work begun in 1976. Seven years later, despite the interruptions of apostolic work and the vagaries of travel as vocation director, the task I promised the provincial of that time, Charles Haggerty, is completed.
This is not a critical history nor a definitive work. Neither is it a mere chronicle, What I have tried to do is establish what took place in the past of the province using the documentary material extant. Decisions on the authenticity of documents and their provenance were required. Logically, the next project is a biographical summary of the Carmelites who worked in this province. Sometime in the future, aided by such works, is a critical history of the province.
