A memory submitted by Wilis “Jerry” Heydenberk, Class of 1985

Dr. Thomas Watson, a British professor, who taught on the SMU Perkins staff about 1982-87. He was wonderfully humorous and fascinating in his speech. I particularly enjoyed a class he led with about 8-10 graduates about Christianity in China. He made that such an effective learning laboratory!

Other than Professor Watson, I enjoyed Roger Deschner and John Holbert, although I did not have a class with him. His wit at Chapel and ability to pronounce all those OT words always amazed and delighted me. These, then, were my favorite Profs at Perkins.
