Excerpt

The Aristotelian Society of Marquette University each year invites a scholar to deliver a lecture in honor of St Thomas Aquinas. Customarily delivered on the Sunday nearest March 7th, the feast day of the Society's patron saint, these lectures are called the Aquinas Lectures.

In 1947 the Society had the pleasure of recording the lecture of Vernon J. Bourke, Ph.D. It was delivered in the Marquette University High School Auditorium Sunday afternoon, March 9.

Vernon J. Bourke was born at North Bay, Ontario, in 1907. He attended St. Michael's College in Toronto, winning the Cardinal Mercier and the Governor General's medals in the philosophy honors course and receiving his B.A. in 1928. He then entered the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto, and was one of the first to attend the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies . . .
