Boston College A to Z
The Spirit of the Heights

By Thomas H. O'Connor

In this A to Z guide to Boston College, University Historian Thomas H. O’Connor shares a treasure trove of stories, legends, and memories that imbue the spirit of the Heights. O’Connor invites readers to look anew at Boston College, "an exceptional place where amusing things happen, where important events are taken seriously, where the best of the future has been combined with the best of the past, and where memories of Linden Lane, Gasson Tower, the Golden Eagle, and the sound of the bells chiming the hours of the day are among recollections, large and small, that give this University a very special place in our hearts."

Founding Fathers

Edited by Ben Birnbaum

From the introduction by William P. Leahy, S.J.
