Presidential Fellow

University of Notre Dame

My study of the World will have been barren and irresponsible if it has not equipped me and spurred me to do what I can - infinitesimal though the effect of my action may be - to help mankind cure itself of some of the evil that, in my lifetime, I have seen human beings inflict on each other." Arnold Toynbee, Experiences
