Author: Brittany Collins Kaufman

"Fifty Years with Father Hesburgh: On and Off the Record" by Robert Schmuhl

Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., president of the University of Notre Dame from 1952 to 1987, was one of the nation’s most influential figures in higher education and national affairs and a well-known figure on campus. In the 1960s, a student named Robert Schmuhl, covering what Father Hesburgh called “the student revolution” for the Associated Press, began what would be a lifelong relationship with the president.

Schmuhl, now the Walter H. Annenberg-Edmund P. Joyce Chair in American Studies and Journalism at Notre Dame, kept a unique relationship with Father Hesburgh, starting more than half a century ago as a student journalist on the campus beat and evolving into a friendship that lasted until Father Hesburgh’s death in 2015.
