Two lectures from this Roman Catholic bishop and one of the prime movers behind the system of Catholic schools in the United States. McQuaid founded Seton Hall and later lobbied extensively for what might now be considered "parental choice," a system of state non-interference in education. These two lectures argue his case (with familiar themes): "The channel of thought in the Common Schools of this State is either the Protestant or the 'Godless' . . . Education 'purely secular,' or without religious instruction, does not lessen crime."
