In his book, Father Theodore Hesburgh, chronicled his work as a priest, university president, and a public servant in politics and government. This autobiography talks about his experiences on 14 presidential commissions, including the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and the development of Notre Dame into a strong Catholic university. He said of his Notre Dame experience, a great university “needs a great faculty, a great student body, and great facilities.” Father Hesburgh also commented on the current war in the Persian Gulf and gave his religious views on the conflict. close
