From the Seminary to the Newsroom

 I experienced "the turmoil of the 1960s, and revolutionary changes in the Catholic Church triggered by the Second Vatican Council" while attending a men's Catholic college that hosted a summit on Pacem in terris, the last encyclical by, and the "last will and testament" of, John Pope XXIII, proclaiming that peace must be based on truth, justice, love and freedom. It laid the groundwork for much of the student activism of the 60s. Lawrence D. Maloney attended a Seminary at the time, fulfilling a "lifelong" (through 8th grade) ambition to become a priest. We each found a secular vocation, he as a noted journalist and publisher, I as "Harry the Librarian." If you read "Look Inside" at the book's Amazon page you will experience personal storytelling that transports you to that time of innocence and idealism. Clicking on the book cover will take you to the Amazon page for the book.
