Synopsis

Founded in 1882 in New Haven, CT by Father Michael McGivney, the Knights of Columbus were the antidote to anti-Catholic sentiment that raged through the country after the Civil War. This self-help organization, first organized around providing insurance for otherwise-uninsurable Catholics, has grown to more than 1.7 million members worldwide. By Their Works: Profiles of Men of Faith Who Made a Difference tells the stories of 60 famous Knights from all walks of life. Biographies of Babe Ruth and Vince Lombardi in sports; Alfred E. Smith and John F. Kennedy in politics; astronaut Paul Scully-Power; and Sept. 11th hero FDNY Lt. Daniel O'Callaghan are included.
