Language of Materials
Brother Ernest Ryan, CSC, founded Dujarie Press in 1943 to publish book-length lives of the saints that would appeal to contemporary children. He himself wrote many of the books, and others Holy Cross brothers also contributed by writing books. Holy Cross brothers also helped by typing manuscripts and canvassing. In 1968 the brothers closed Dujarie Press.
