ANOTHER ACADEMIC YEAR, INFACT THE 145TH, BEGINS AT LTSPIN SEPTEMBER — a year in which we will observe an important anniversary forthe seminary and the more importantCentennial of the Krauth MemorialLibrary and its 100 years of scholarshipand service. The Brossman Learning Center, except for it con-nection to the library, is now completed (though not all paidfor yet), and the Schaeffer-Ashmead Chapel is on its way to a wonderful renovation, allowing us to turn our attention to thetreasure that is the Krauth Memorial Library and equip it forcontinued scholarship and service. We will be lifting up thelibrary and its stories through this year, including our plans torenovate the library, build an addition that will include amuseum and new rare book room, and connect the library toThe Brossman Center, making the library handicapped accessi-ble. We hope that this project will finish what we started by2011, with work to begin when sufficient funds have beenraised.On Saturday, September 27, we plan a Day of Remembranceand Celebration. Our library director, Dr. Karl Krueger, isorganizing a special exhibit highlighting some of the library’scontributions through its first 100 years. Also on that day, we will remember The Rev. Dr. William Lazareth as we recall hiscontributions to theology and ethics, and launch a campaignto establish a lectureship in theology and ethics in his honor. Join us for this day of celebration and remembrance beginning at 10:00 am and concluding with a memorial service at 2:00 pm.As we welcome an exciting new class of seminarians andgraduate students this fall, we also celebrate the new term of our illustrious dean of the seminary, The Rev. Dr. J. PaulRajashekar. The board, upon the nomina-tion of the faculty, elected my good friendand colleague to a distinguished thirdterm. We are thankful for his brilliantleadership in the church, the academy,and at the seminary. He is loved by stu-dents, alumni, staff, and faculty alike, and was acclaimed by the board in his recent reelection. We willnot be seeing much of Dean Rajashekar in the fall, as we promised him a much-deserved six-month sabbatical.Professors Katie Day and Robert Robinson have graciously volunteered to serve as acting deans while he is on sabbatical.You will also read in this issue about the passing of our dearmentor and colleague emeritus, Dr. John H.P. Reumann,Ministerium Professor of New Testament and Greek Emeritusat LTSP. Like Dr. Lazareth, Dr. Reumann was truly a teacherof the church. Dr. Reumann prepared more than a generationof well-educated church leaders, and influenced the careers of countless students and alumni who passed through this won-derful school. A celebration of Dr. Reumann’s life and faith was held on June 12 at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church inLansdale, Pennsylvania. We will remember Professor Reumannat LTSP at the annual Alumni Convocation next spring, andhonor his distinguished memory with a Faculty Chair inBiblical Studies established in his name.Philip D.W.
