H. Evan Runner, ’39, on March 14, 2002, of cancer. Professor of philosophy at Calvin College from 1951 – 1981, in 1993 he was given the prestigious “Faith and Learning Award” by the Calvin Alumni Association for successfully and consistently integrating faith and learning in the classroom. He helped establish the Institute for Christian Studies (ICS), a Christian graduate school in Toronto where faculty and students explore Runner’s vision of an integral, interdisciplinary philosophy as a key component to a thorough Christian contribution to education and culture. In April 2001, the ICS created the H. Evan Runner Chair in the History of Philosophy. Calvin’s president, Gaylen Byker, honored Runner’s vision for a thoroughly Christian approach to philosophy and stated that Calvin College is still shaped by his influence. He was 86.
