Jesuit’s First Year of Football   The game of football has thrilled fans since the first game was played on November 6th in 1869. The game evolved and soon incorporated ideas such as the snap and even later the forward pass. In Texas, football holds a special place in everybody’s hearts, and whether it’s pee-wee, high-school, collegiate, or pro level, crowds seem...
Similarly to The Chronicles of Narnia, a small room in Jesuit leads the onlooker to an alternate reality. The Jesuit Archives, a small room piled high with aged photographs, colorful memorabilia and books from years past, is located across from the Jesuits’ Rectory. Records go back to the late 1930s when the Jesuits petitioned Rome for permission to begin...
On the opening night of the Winter One Acts, January 9th, an exhibit commemorating a legacy that dates back to the founding years of Jesuit Dallas will be unveiled. To be displayed outside the new Jesuit Theater box office, on the east side of the Lecture Hall, are six frames, each a snapshot of a decade of Jesuit Theater dating...
The entire packed auditorium at Fair Park focuses on Charles as he walks up to the stage, looking toward the principal of Jesuit High School, Fr. Michael Kammer, S.J.  Shaking his hand, Charles gazes out into the crowd of students watching him. This is not just any other night; it is the class of 1958’s graduation, a night filled...
As I drive south down Inwood Lane in my brand-new 1955 turquoise Chevrolet Bel Air, I look in the rear-view mirror and glance out into the open green pastures behind me, unoccupied by any obtruding buildings, devoid of car exhaust. Seven years from now, in the fall of 1962, this cotton field will be the site of the newly...
On October 16, 2011, a dedication took place in Washington D.C. for the memorial of the most important civil rights leader in our nation’s history, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  King led much of the Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s and 1960s, beginning with his involvement in the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955. Dr. King’s birthday, which is celebrated...
The average Jesuit student writes three to four research papers in his career, with each paper taking around a week of solid work. Junior Payton Maher’s series on Jesuit integration in the 1950’s, written exclusively for The Roundup, entailed a much deeper and more comprehensive research process than a garden-variety research paper. So comprehensive is his work, in fact, that...
For natives of the 21st century, the milieu of the 1950’s likely seems strange and foreign. The fastest car of the day, the Ford Thunderbird, hit maximum speeds of 75 miles per hour, low-speed by today’s standards; drivers paid a tantalizingly low 18 cents for a gallon of gasoline; and, probably most shocking of all to a present-day observer,...
