Notre Dame: Morris Inn Records

Identifier: INN

Scope and Contents

Records of the Morris Inn. Photographic prints, slides, negatives, and transparencies, most of the Morris Inn and the remainder of campus scenes and activities, 1940s-1990s (bulk 1990s). Objects include six Reed and Barton Silver Soldered 96 ounce coffee pots stamped "University of Notre Dame" (probably originally used in the South Dining Hall); two ladles (one stamped "Morris Inn"); one International Silver Company Silver Soldered dish stamped "Morris Inn"; ten menu holders; Sorin's Lunch Menu, Spring 2011 (4 copies); The Morris Inn's Mother's Day Dinner Menu, 13 May 2012 (3 copies); and fifteen restaurant reservation books, 1996-2010. Some of the reservation books will probably be discarded in the future (once other records from the Morris Inn have been received). One old metal sign about 34" x 60" that reads "Morris Inn / Guest Rooms / Air Conditioned / Dining Room / Open" on both sides (one side is splattered by paint); a Reed and Barton silver soldered 96 ounce coffee pot (probably previously used in the South Dining Hall); and a framed mission statement for the Morris Inn and Notre Dame Conference Center.


  • Creation: 1940s-2012.
