This brief narrative summarizes Rev. Joseph T. O'Callahan's affiliation with the College of the Holy Cross and his heroic actions aboard the USS Franklin when it was attacked during World War II. Fr. O'Callahan was awarded the Medal of Honor, and the College further honored him by naming the science library in Haberlin Hall (now in Swords Hall) after him.
