REFLECTIONS FROM THE DOME
Reflections will feature excerpts from books with stories and memoirs about Notre Dame.

This month's Reflections From the Dome will continue our tradition of dedicating the February newsletter to George Gipp, one of Notre Dame's greatest legends and icons. The highlight of the newsletter will be an excerpt from Robert Burns' recent book Being Catholic, Being American. The excerpt tells for the first time the fascinating true story of Gipp's explusion from the University and his subsequent reinstatement. It's an interesting look at the inside workings of the school administration at the time and their relationship with the leading political, business and industrial figures in South Bend.
