  • History of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth: Buckner, Sister Mary. 1898.
    Sister Mary Buckner joined the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth in 1867; just nine years after the Order established itself in Leavenworth. Many of the pioneer Sisters were still living, including the Founder, Mother Xavier Ross. With access to the memories of stories of these Sisters, Sister Mary Buckner created a unique history of the early days of the Community. Sister Mary Buckner’s book is, however, a product of the language and attitudes of her time and some of those ideas or aspects of culture have evolved over time.
