Professoring at Pacific: The Whole Truth About Half a Century
Beloved Emeritus Professor Larry Meredith returned to Pacific during Homecoming 2015 to deliver his “last lecture” to a packed audience.
Meredith’s tenure at Pacific spanned 33 years from 1966-1999, during which he inspired thousands of students. He held a variety of positions at Pacific including: dean of the chapel, professor of humanities, and professor of religious studies. He helped establish Callison College, one of the nation’s first cluster colleges, which emphasized international relations with faculty and students traveling annually to India and Japan. Even after his retirement, Meredith remains active in the campus community by providing lectures, meeting with students and mentoring faculty.
We are pleased to present a recording of his entire lecture here:
