About the Author:

John Wagoner was born and nurtured in the Iowa Quaker Community. He brings this perspective to the writing of a history of the changes and development during the past thirty-five years in the life of his undergraduate alma mater, William Penn College, from which he graduated in 1958. His graduate degree is from Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. He holds honorary doctoral degrees from William Penn College, St. Petersburg Theological Seminary, and Sungshin University. He was invited to return to William Penn College in 1964 to build a development and advancement program. In 1984 the Board of Trustees invited him to accept the position of president, from which he retired in 1995 as President Emeritus. The College's invitation to write this account of its passage through a time of change caps the author's life of service to the church, the college and Quaker higher education.
