Collection Historical Note

J. Richard Chase (Ph.D., Cornell University) came to Wheaton College in 1982 after serving twelve years as president of Biola. He came as the most experienced of all of Wheaton’s presidents and reinforced Wheaton's commitment to its biblical foundations. Chase oversaw a period of significant growth relating to endowment, buildings, and academic programs and  successfully shepherding the College through a period of cultural change and economic turbulence. He continually endeavored to attract to the College gifted students who could profit from its rigorous academic objectives and religious underpinnings, and he dedicated much of his eleven-year term to furnishing and providing funding for the administrative structures and procedures that would make the achievement of that goal possible. The College, higher education in general, and numerous national, state, and local organizations benefited from Chase's visionary leadership.
