The Ladies of Notre Dame Newsletter was started in 1966. Lillian Fahey and Eva Eliel were its first editors. Called The Distaff, it was published “more or less monthly” as it was the sole method of communication available excepting the telephone chain.
For the past 16 years, it has been published four (or at most five times) a year in September, November, January, and March (perhaps April.)
Members have a choice of receiving a printed copy (through the US mail or Campus mail) or an electronic copy through e-mail.
Presently approximately 170 members receive the electronic version. The e-newsletters of the past years may be accessed below.
