DePaul University Special Collections and Archives Department is honored to announce the recent donation of papers and artifacts by Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, noted advocate for death-row inmates, and death penalty opponent.  Sister Helen’s extensive donation includes her correspondence with prison inmates, records documenting her work with anti-death penalty organizations, and manuscripts of her books Dead Man Walking and Death of Innocents, as well as props used in the film adaptation of Dead Man Walking. The initial deposit of records will be open for research by early 2012, and will be supplemented by future transfers from Sister Helen.
