A memory submitted by Gene Mace, Class of 1958

Dr. Fred Gealy — I came to Perkins School of Theology with a divisional science major from college. At Perkins I found a major change in having to read books rather than pages for assignments. I went to Dr. Gealy, my faculty adviser, and asked why we had to read all this stuff. He replied, “If you are interested in it I need not explain. If you are not interested in it there is no way to explain.” I experienced him as a wise and caring person. He was an inspiration to me.
