The Perkins 40th Story, 1986

Perkins School of Theology celebrated its fortieth anniversary in 1986 with this illustrated booklet based on the work of Lewis Howard Grimes. Grimes had graduated from the School of Theology in 1940. He joined the Perkins faculty in 1949 and retired in 1982. At the urging of Dean Joseph Quillian, Grimes began to write an institutional history. Excerpts of that work were published in 1986 in this booklet. The rest of Grimes’s work was published in 1993, four years after his death, as A History of the Perkins School of Theology, edited by Roger Loyd.
