To pay attention to earlier generations.
To let their words challenge us.
To take their ideas further
THAT is our project celebrating our 125th anniversary.
Charles Edwin Schofield
Charles Edwin Schofield was inaugurated as Iliff’s next president in November 1934. He served until 1942, a period in which a number of University of Chicago graduates were brought into the Iliff faculty.
He was a well-respected clergyman in Colorado who had been campus minister in Fort Collins, served important Methodist congregations and was a District Superintendent when he was selected by the Trustees to lead Iliff. He brought a needed capacity to preach the theological views characterized by young faculty members such as William H. Bernhardt, bridging between academy and church.
His basic approach is characterized in his installation address, An Adequate Fatih, scanned here from his manuscript now in the archives.
Questions you might comment on as you annotate include noting where you see our current core values reflecting similar or different concerns to those Schofield addressed.
