Notre Dame University, a private co-educational Catholic research college was founded in 1842 in South Bend, Indiana and is consistently ranked among the top 20 universities in America.  Founded by the Congregation of the Holy Cross as an all-male school, the university became co-educational in 1971.  The Kennedy family, whose members have held numerous political positions, have a history of Roman Catholic roots, and have been benefactors for numerous students to attend Notre Dame. 

Ted Kennedy Edward Moore “Ted” Kennedy (1932-2009), Massachusetts Senator and part of the famous Kennedy clan, ran against incumbent Jimmy Carter in the 1980 Presidential Primary for the Democratic ticket.  To date, this was the last primary in which an incumbent lost electoral states to another candidate in a presidential primary.  The victories were not enough to secure the nomination, and Carter went on to represent the Democratic Party.  Kennedy returned to his post as Senator, where he served out a 47 year term as the Senator from Massachusetts.
