Sadler, Glen | Archival Collections at Wheaton College

Name: Sadler, Glen

Historical Note:

Dr. Glenn Edward Sadler graduated from Wheaton College with an undergraduate degree in literature in 1958, and got to know Wade Center founder Dr. Clyde S. Kilby during his time at Wheaton. Sadler went on to complete his Ph.D. at the University of Aberdeen in 1966, and his dissertation is titled: The Cosmic Vision: A Study of the Poetry of George MacDonald. He has also edited the book: An Expression of Character: The Letters of George MacDonald. (Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 1994), and edited the additional following works by Macdonald: The Gifts of the Child Christ & Other Stories (Eerdmans, 1973, 1996), The Lost Princess (Eerdmans, 1992), and The Portent (Eerdmans, 1979).

In 1965, the year of the formation of The Lewis Collection, Sadler worked closely with Dr. Kilby and as a liaison for the collection in England, where he played an especially important role in making the first contacts with Mrs. Charles Williams. Sadler maintained his connection with Wheaton College over the years, and often represented the Wade Center abroad while traveling in the United Kingdom. He also taught the literature course “Modern Mythology” at Wheaton College, which was started by Clyde Kilby and featured the Wade Center authors.
