Abstract

The purpose of this study is to relate the history of the first American Community--the Sisters of Loretto--who crossed the "American Desert" in 1852 to establish schools in New Mexico, and to narrate the account of the foundation, organization, and development of each school in chronological order. Today the Sisters conduct eight elementary schools and four high schools in the State. Some of these schools, begun nearly a century ago within small adobe walls, are now recognized as establishments of culture and learning.
