Browse all items in the collection

Patricia Doyle (née Patricia Ellen Ricci), Rosary College alumnae from the class of 1957, was a graphic designer who worked for numerous Catholic institutions in the Chicago area for several decades. Born July 10, 1934, Patti was a lifelong Chicagoland resident who took part in and contributed to the cultural and religious life of the city, until her passing in May of 2010.

This digital collection showcases some of her posters created for Dominican University (known as Rosary College until 1997) and for Argus Communications. Argus Communications was a Chicago-based design company created as a means to disseminate information in response to Vatican Council II, published books, videos, audio recordings, posters, educational materials and various articles of ephemera. Patti worked primarily with Richard C. Leach (August 24, 1927-May 29, 2001), founder in 1922 of Resources for Christian Living (RCL), the parent company of Argus, and then company President. Patti ceased working for Argus in 1973.
