Burns (history, U. of Notre Dame) tells the story of the founding years of Notre Dame, from a Catholic boarding school for mostly middle class Irish and German immigrant boys, to a modern American Catholic university. He focuses on the formation of the university's academic prestige and its nationally ranking football team, particularly in the wake of a storm of anti-Catholic sentiment, as a backdrop for the triumphs and travails of the general American Catholic population. The history of the University of Notre Dame, according to the author, mirrors the rise of the American Catholic minority from despised foreigners to accepted authentic Americans. Annotation c.
