The Story of Notre Dame
Sorin's Memoirs

In 1880 Father Sorin read his Chronicles and reminisced. His audience knew him as a venerable elder with a long white beard, a man who loved children and whom children loved. Perhaps the undergraduates of that time had difficulty imagining the Sorin who founded Notre Dame -- a man hardly older than themselves who made a journey of thousands of miles over the sea, hundreds of miles over land, to found a Catholic college in northern Indiana.
