Photo of the Week: Big Red Ted

Author: Notre Dame Magazine


After saying Mass in the Dillon Hall chapel one night in 1975, Father Hesburgh agreed to hang around for some photos. He even wore a Dillon T-shirt, establish such enduring Big Red cred that the image even made it onto a promotional poster for the 2018 Heaburgh documentary.

Thanks to Elton Johnson ’76, the hall president at the time (pictured in the front row, far left), for sharing this image from Dillon and Notre Dame lore.
