Dr. R. J. Love, inspiring head of the Bible department at Westminster
College since 1921, has retired according to information given out at the
meeting of the college board of trustees Monday morning. Dr. Love has not
been in good health all year.
A graduate of Westminster in the class of 1885, Dr. Love has had a
distinguished and purposeful career. He received his M.A. degree from
Westminster in 1889, was graduated from the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in
1892, received the Ph.D. degree from Westminster, in cursu, in 1894, and was
given the honorary D.D. degree by his alma mater in 1928.
From 1888 to 1890, Dr. Love was pastor of the united Presbyterian church
of Lebanon, Missouri, and district missionary. He was, from 1890 to 1903
professor of pedagogy and history at Knoxville College. He was principal of
the Oakland school of languages, mathematics, and history in Pittsburgh from
1903 to 1906. He is a member of Pi Gamma Mu honorary social science
fraternity; and a member of the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania.
Dr. Love is the author of three books on religious subjects, and has
contributed many articles to church publications. He was one of the founders
of the Holcad, student newspaper at Westminster. He has been a teacher of
men's Bible classes, and has been an excellent influence on the Westminster
campus because of his sterling character and his popularity with young people.
Dr. and Mrs. Love plan to retire to their small estate in Lockhart,
Florida, near Winter Park. Here they have a fine home, a small farm, an
orange grove, and a small private lake. Dr. Love will spend some time in
study and will preach occasionally.
