Oil, and Cuba, NY
of Those who Knew Him
Fr. Irenaeus is most well
known for his tenure as head librarian of Friedsam Memorial Library at St.
Bonaventure University. He enlightened all that inquired, and believed:
"that by being
gracious to visitors and patrons, it provides an opportunity of showing
appreciation for what has been provided, and gratefulness to those who
have been generous to St. Bonaventure University."
Father Irenaeus Herscher left a legacy at St. Bonaventure
University. The love he shared for his school and the Franciscan way
of life was evident in all things he did. Anyone who knew Fr. Irenaeus, or
knows of him, knows that his admiration for life and learning was
unmistakable. He touched all those who knew him and will continue to
influence the St. Bonaventure Community for years and years to come.
