The Teacher Behind the Teachers

From the Archives

We suspect that, during her decades at Seattle Pacific, this woman may have trained hundreds — nay, thousands — of teachers to make a difference in young lives around the world. Can you name her?

Contest Winner: The Science of Detection

From the Archives
Congratulations to Carol King Schaper '63, who sleuthed out the names of the SCIOS club. Carol, who is also pursuing research on the history of student mission trips at Seattle Pacific, picked up her sweatshirt when she was on campus in January for the 2012 SPRINT reunion
— and spent a few hours in the archives doing additional research.

Standing (left to right) are George Komoriya '60, Earl Holst '59, Richard Spann '61, Gerald Kline '60, David Corey '60, Clarence Blaine '60, Wilfred Braithwaite '62, and Clayton Lanum '65. Seated
(left to right) are David Wong '61, Keith Roynon '60, Jackson Lynn '61, and Gerald “Jerry” Bartlett '61. Jerry correctly identified fellow club member David Wong as part of the team that discovered Prozac — and as SPU's Alumnus of the Year for 1998.

Sandy Huxtable Brinkman '79 also identified David Wong and adds, “We were his host family when he came to SPC, and I was just a baby.”

Thanks to all who wrote in!
