Gallant Fighting Sons: the Compelling and Entertaining Book that Chronicles the History of Jesuit High School
Jesuit High School’s history is long and rich. Yet no one has captured that history in book-form. Until now! Ron Drez of the Class of 1958 has spent several years researching and writing, and now the result of his labor is available for all to read.
Gallant Fighting Sons: The Jesuits, Louisiana, and Their School in New Orleans takes us from the first steps of the Jesuits on North American soil to their founding of a school for young men in downtown New Orleans to the Jesuit High School of today in the heart of Mid-City.
Incorporating 167 photos and dozens of interviews into 444 pages of engaging text and notes, Drez presents a fascinating, colorful, and intimate history of New Orleans’s oldest Catholic boys’ high school and her students — Jesuit High School and her “gallant fighting sons.”
