Item Description...
The story of Fordham University is a story of New York; it is a story of immigration, of clashes between Catholics and Protestants, of civil and women's rights, of war, money, and power. Schroth tells the history of Fordham University through stories of individuals-some famous and others less so. Through these stories, Schroth examines topics such as educational and religious controversies, the rise and fall of the Bronx, war, and racial desegregation.

Save your money.  Oct 11, 2005
I am a Fordham alumnus (FCO '70). If the accuracy of Mr. Schroth's account of William Arnone is any indication of the degree of accuracy in the rest of the book, then I would say that Mr. Schroth has authored a most interesting work. . . of fiction!
Re-creating Fordham  Aug 15, 2005
Ray Schroth has done a superb job bringing to life the history of one of the country's major institutions of Catholic/Jesuit education. His colorful prose not only captures the evolution of Fordham, but also places Fordham's history in the context of the nation's different eras. While some of his facts are questionable or inaccurate, especially pertaining to the turbulent years of the sixties and seventies, he still manages to give a good sense of Fordham's struggles and accomplishments. You need not have attended Fordham (as I did from 1966-1970) to appreciate the value of this memoir. This book is so good that I was even able to disregard its erroneous depiction of my role during those years.

They spoke French in the Bronx?  Jun 22, 2002
Ray Schroth's memoir of Fordham University, at one time the largest U.S. institution of Catholic higher education is worthy of space on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the history of New York, higher education in the United States, or Jesuitica. I am particularly interested to find out where the rifles, which were used to protect the Universitatis against a "Know-Nothings" uprising, were removed to post 1968. Machte virtute!
