SSND in North Dakota-Anti-Garb Law
The North Dakota Anti-Garb Law of 1948

September 1948 in North Dakota brought about an interesting side note in the history of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. A new school year was about to begin, and the teachers in Strasburg and Mantador, North Dakota, were about to have two unusual things in common. Not only would it be their first day teaching in a public school, but also it would be the first time that any of them would appear in their classrooms in civilian “garb” and not in their habits. The SSND North American Archives tells the fascinating story of the North Dakota Anti-Garb Law that went into effect in 1948. Read the full story at SSND North American Archives.
