Celebrating the character and heritage of the University of Notre Dame, this collection of stories captures the spirit of an institution that has come to symbolize excellence and faith in action. A variety of places and personalities are described—from the Golden Dome to the Grotto, from faith-filled visionaries and world-renowned scholars to celebrated coaches and athletes—setting Notre Dame apart as an institution of mystique and grace that has deeply influenced millions of people. Included in these pages are stories of many of the university’s most prominent leaders: its bold founder, Reverend Edward Sorin; Fathers Corby, Hesburgh, and Malloy; professors Frank O’Malley and Emil T. Hofman; and a host of graduates—such as Dr. Tom Dooley and Judge Ann Williams—who have made a difference in the world. Many of the school’s most famous athletes, including legends of the gridiron Knute Rockne, Rudy Ruettinger, and Chris Zorich, are profiled alongside stories of miraculous comebacks and incredible victories, making this account a fascinating and inspiring story of scholars and champions.
