Murray Sperber. Notre Dame (ND) is considered the paragon of college football, with a history of almost mythical proportions. This is the story of its formative years, the reality behind the myths. Beginning with the humble origins of ND football in the 19th cent., Sperber traces the evolution of the team to its status as a preeminent football power. He used Knute Rockne’s voluminous private correspondence. He illuminates individuals such as Jesse Harper, Knute Rockne, George Gipp, Father John O’Hara, Elmer Layden, Frank Leahy, & Grantland Rice. Both social history & sports history, this book documents the first half century of ND football. B&W photos.
