HISTORY

The Mariological Society of America was founded by Fr. Juniper B. Carol, O.F.M., in October 1949. The charter members gathered for the first meeting in Washington, D.C., in January 1950. Since that time,the MSA has met annually in various cities throughout the United States.

In 1954, the Society was recognized as a corporation"organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational and scientific purposes."
Listed in the Official Catholic Directory as one of the national organizations of the United States Catholic Conference, it is recognized as a tax-exempt organization.

Since 1979, the office of the executive secretary of the MSA has been located at the Marian Library of the University of Dayton.
