Greetings from Old Notre Dame

Author: Notre Dame Magazine

Dan Dosmann collects historical postcards of the South Bend area. The Mishawaka, Indiana, resident has more than 550 that depict old Notre Dame, featuring still-familiar campus scenes and long-vanished spaces — and even red brick and a blue dome that have never been part of the landscape, errors attributable to colorization done far from northern Indiana. Images from Dosmann’s collection are featured in our spring issue, and he joined associate editor Margaret Fosmoe ’85 on The Endless Conversation to discuss his hobby and the history his postcards represent.
