GRD Ed./Couns Psych./Pastoral Min. '59
Barbeau, Clayton

The Father of the Family: A Christian Perspective, by Clayton Barbeau M.A. ’59, is now in its 55th year in print. First begun while a student on campus, the seven chapters took seven weeks to complete. The book was translated into Italian at the request of Cardinal Tisserant for use by the Vatican Council II fathers who were working on marriage and family issues. When Barbeau’s copies first arrived, he discovered that every chapter in the book was preceded by a paragraph from one of the Council documents. The Croation edition followed the Italian edition, and the English language editions followed suit.
