Daniel Lord, S.J.: The Restless Flame — Thinking Big in a Parochial World
St. Louisan Daniel Lord (1888-1955) was one of the most influential American religious figures of the 20th century. He wrote 230 pamphlets — which sold 25 million copies — and 70 plays and musicals, with some of his elaborate pageants featuring casts of more than 1,000. Lord also co-wrote the controversial Motion Picture Production Code, the self-censorship rules to which the studios adhered from 1930-68.
