The story of Saskatchewan's Notre Dame College. "In 1927, an indomitable little priest 'on loan' from the Archdiocese of Toronto, arrived in the small western town of Wilcox, Saskatchewan, with an entourage of fifteen boys. Six years later, in the depth of the Depression, with no campus, no experience and no money, Father Athol Murray founded a college to help the young people of the poverty-stricken prairies obtain their higher education--they learned their history and philosophy from an incredible library of original mediaeval manuscripts and they produced some of the toughest amateur hockey teams in the history of the sport in Canada." You gotta love a priest who'll exhort his afflicted hockey team with the words, "Goddammit, boys, if you can't beat 'em, at least give 'em the measles!"; 164 pages, including index, illustrated. Previous owner's signature on front pastedown, dusty edges, light edgewear. Dust jacket is rubbed w/strongly-sunned (but legible) spine, crinkling/short tears to spine ends, short tears to top front fold and bottom rear fold, short tear to bottom of rear panel.
