Founding Spirit

The inaugural class of the Fordham University Hall of Honor includes religious, civic and military leaders; innovative artists and scientists; giants of sport and philanthropy. Their lives and works exemplify the twin spirits of academic rigor and service to others that have been at the heart of the University's mission since 1841.
