Miscellaneous (quintessentially Joe)

HomeSite MapContact Us


It may seem unorderly to have a topic category of “Miscellaneous,” but it seems inescapable in the case of Joseph Sittler. His mind ranged over so many subjects and his interests were so universal, that almost every aspect of human life and the divine story is touched somewhere in the body of his written and spoken word. So under this topic we place those pieces of his that simply don’t fit into one or more of the other topic areas. Where else, for example, would an archivist put Sittler’s essay “Eleanor and the Big Brown Buick”? Browsing in this area of the archive will reveal just how eclectic this man was and, hence, perhaps explain how he was able to touch so many lives in so many different ways.
