Volume 4  No.7                                                              March 2002

This month's Irish Reveries newsletter honors the memory of Knute Rockne, who was born and left this earth in the month of March. Our main feature, Reflections From the Dome, is an article written by Chet Grant called Recollections of Rockne. As described by Mr. Grant in his florid but entertaining writing style: "...some hitherto unrecorded first - and second-hand nontechnical recollections of Rock as the assistant football coach at Notre Dame (1914-1916)." Chet was a reporter for the South Bend Tribune, a quarterback under Rockne, teammate of Gipp's, a coach under Elmer Layden in the thirties, and the unofficial historian for Notre Dame sports from the teens to the 1980s. The newsletter also features stories, humor and photos of Knute Rockne.

New -- The Cave of Candles will feature an story of an Italian boy from Philadelphia and his Notre Dame experience. From the book Grotto Stories.

This month's edition of Out of Bounds will feature anecdotes about Rockne and his famous Notre Dame shift.

Campus Life this month is a slice of student life from the the late 1920s.
