In 2002, when I was writing a profile of the late Eppie Lederer (a.k.a. Ann Landers), one of the top ten people on my interview list was Father Theodore Hesburgh, then president emeritus of Notre Dame University and an old friend of the famous Chicago advice columnist. I drove to South Bend and found Hesburgh, once the best-known university president in America, in a tiny office adjacent to the library stacks. He shared with me his memories of Eppie, had who died a few months before. Some of those memories, occasionally quite personal, appeared in the Chicago profile published the next February.
