Re: Apologetics Press at the Christian Scholars Conference!
- I was curious about the COC connection. Apparently it's through David Lipscomb College (which became David Lipscomb University in 1988, and now is name just Lipscomb University), which is where Lipscomb received his Bachelor's. His first professorship after receiving his Ph.D. (in American History, from Tulane Univ.) was at Pepperdine.
| Jerry Hudson ('59)
| "He understands the virtues of patience, continuous
| improvement and long-term relationships," said Henry
| Hewitt, chairman of the Willamette University board of
| trustees, on Hudson's retirement as president of that
| institution in 1997.
| Hewitt could not have defined the exceptional leader more
| succinctly as he complimented Hudson, who served as
| Willamette's president for 17 years after serving as
| president of Hamline University from 1975 to 1980. He rose
| to the presidency from a series of formative leadership
| experiences: earning his bachelor's degree at Lipscomb in
| 1959, the master's and doctorate at Tulane University, and
| serving at Pepperdine, where he was where professor of
| history, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and
| provost before becoming provost and dean of the
| university's Malibu campus.
| "I think two aspects of my education at Lipscomb prepared
| me for leadership in higher education," Hudson said.
| "First, the personal mentoring that went on at Lipscomb,
| and still continues, served me well. I received great deal
| of help from Howard White, my mentor at Lipscomb. He moved
| on to Pepperdine and offered me my first teaching job. The
| personal interest he showed as a faculty member at
| Lipscomb meant a lot to me. I didn't go to Lipscomb with
| the thought of serving in higher education, but the
| example of Howard White and others from Lipscomb set a
| wonderful example for my career.
| "Secondly, in going from Lipscomb to my graduate work at
| Tulane, I gained confidence in the value of my
| undergraduate education. I found myself competing with men
| and women from many different universities. I was able to
| compete with others in my field well. It was a validation
| of the quality of my education from Lipscomb.
| "I owe a great to deal to Lipscomb. The education from
| Lipscomb I received left me well prepared to serve in
| higher education. It does speak well to the school to have
| this number of people who have excelled both in teaching
| in higher education and serving in the administration for
| colleges and universities," Hudson said.
| Hudson influenced higher education on a national scale as
| director of the National Association of Independent
| Colleges and Universities. He also served as president of
| the Oregon Independent Colleges Association and as
| chairman of the Educational Insurance Administrators
| Association. In 1987, Hudson became the executive vice
| president of The Collins Foundation, a philanthropic
| organization that works to improve and enrich the
| religious, educational, cultural and scientific endeavors
| in Oregon. He served in that capacity until 2007.
