Doug Simon Professor of Political Science Emeritus
OK. It's confession time. In the Fall of 1972 the chartered bus pulled out of the Lincoln Tunnel and on to 42nd Street, passed by the gauntlet of porn shops, passed the New York Public Library and eventually turned left on 1st Avenue in front of the United Nations loaded with 42 college students from all over the country. Thus began not only my first day helping to direct Drew's Semester on the United Nations, but my very first visit to New York City.
Lester W. Berenbroick, professor emeritus of sacred music and member of the Drew Theological School faculty from 1952 to 1991, passed away on October 3. In addition to teaching popular courses on church music, he served as director of both the theological and undergraduate choirs. He and his partner, Dr. Warren Crater T'59, have been generous benefactors to the seminary including their gift for the expansion and refurbishing of the Craig Chapel pipe organ. Contributions in memory of Lester Berenbroick may be made to the Drew Theological School.
