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.

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.
