Halbrooks Inaugurated as President of Colgate Rochester Crozer

Dr. G. Thomas Halbrooks '60 was inaugurated April 26 as the 10th president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in Rochester, N.Y. Halbrooks joined the Rochester institution after nine years as dean of the faculty and professor of church history at Baptist Theological Seminary in Richmond, Virginia-an institution he helped establish in 1991. The Birmingham native served previously as professor of church history at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary from 1978 until 1991. He holds an M.Div. degree from Southern Baptist

Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Emory University.

Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School is the result of the 1928 merger of two American Baptist seminaries: Colgate Theological Seminary of Hamilton, N.Y., and Rochester Theological Seminary. Crozer Theological Seminary began in 1867 in Chester, Pa., with financial support from Baptist industrialist John P. Crozer, and merged with Colgate Rochester in 1970.

Civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., was a 1951 graduate of Crozer.
