February 10, 1991 - Fr. Hesburgh is interviewed on C-SPAN

God, Country, Notre DameWhen Fr. Hesburgh stepped down as President, he and Fr. Joyce embarked on a year long sabbatical to see the world. Following his journey, Fr. Hesburgh would write two books: God, Country, Notre Dame; and Travels with Ted & Ned. The first would be Hesburgh's autobiography.

Fr. Hesburgh met with Brian Lamb to discuss his autobiography. The two discussed Hesburgh's time at Notre Dame, traveling, and writing the book. The majority of the time was spent on Hesburgh's life, working with Popes and Presidents, and his time with the Civil Rights Commission. As perhaps expected, the discussion turned towards football and Fr. Hesburgh leaves us with this quote "Texas has oil wells and we've got football."

The full transcript and video of the interview can be found here. It is an hour long but well worth the listen.

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I\'d figured I\'d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I\'m planning to start my own site soon but I\'m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I\'m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
