Class of 1950 Spring 2018 Letter
I begin in an unorthodox way. You will note again the set of obituaries listed at the end of my letter - familiar names to me and I’m sure to you as well. This time I want to add a name from outside our class, Robert Jenson, class of ‘51, known to some of us simply as Jens. Brilliant as a student, as a debater, he could appear more arrogant than he really was - as I learned being his roommate one year in Melody Manor. But the brilliance was real. Over the years he became one of the most outstanding, if not the most outstanding, of all American Protestant theologians, with a home base at Princeton University and a strong international reputation. A striking example of the exceptional talents that came from Luther during our era. You may know of others not in our class that we would all like to hear about.
