Claremont School of Theology Memory Book Released

The Office of the Vice President of Advancement and Communications at Claremont School of Theology (CST) proudly announced that CST’s memory book, CST: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, is available for purchase.

This collection of images and text explores some of the highlights of CST’s history and provides an opportunity for readers to engage with their own CST memories. It traces our beginnings from Methodist clergyman and California Senator Charles Maclay’s dream of a theological school all the way up to our current transition to Willamette University in Salem, Oregon.

2020 M.A. graduate and former student worker Keziah Grindeland devoted months to the project, lending her attention to detail and eye for organization to this undertaking. In her work sorting through the CST archives, she was impressed by the enormity of history documented and the illuminating moments in time that could potentially be shared with a wider audience.
