Dr. John Kendall ’49 served Gustavus as a faculty member for 23 years and as president for 10 years. Rev. Dennis Johnson ’60, also a former president of Gustavus, has written a book about the record of John Kendall as a professor and a president. As such, it is a study in leadership. It is about a man who came up through the academic ranks to lead one of America’s best colleges. The book narrates how Kendall took on the challenges, met them with humor and persevered to advance the college he loved. Johnson, and Kendall’s widow and former First Lady Joanne Kendall, will host a book signing in the Twin Cities on April 14, 4-6 p.m. wine, coffee and appetizer reception with a program at 5 p.m., Loring Green West, Fireside Room, 1235 Yale Place, Minneapolis.
