Enthusiasm for Truth: The St. Jerome's Story

One of Canada’s leading scholars of “local history”, Kenneth McLaughlin finally turns his attention to his home institution, St. Jerome's University. Along with co-authors Gerald Stortz, Ph.D. and Fr. Jim Wahl, C.R., Ph.D., he has produced Enthusiasm for the Truth: An Illustrated History of St. Jerome's. Dr. McLaughlin outlines the contribution of the Congregation of the Resurrection, the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the faculty, staff, students, and graduates in transforming St. Jerome's from a log cabin in 1865 to a high tech campus in 2002.
