Fritz Guy Memorial at La Sierra University Church

A memorial service and reception for Fritz Guy will take place on September 16 at 4 p.m. (Pacific Time) at La Sierra University Church. The service will also be livestreamed through the church website and Facebook page:

Before he became the first president of the Adventist Society for Religious Studies and the first president of the reformed La Sierra University, Guy was committed to the publishing ministry. Out of graduate school, he worked as assistant editor of The Youth’s Instructor from 1957 to 1960. But it’s Spectrum’s masthead that reveals his dogged commitment to seriously thinking about being Adventist. In the first issue of Spectrum, published in 1969, Fritz Guy is listed as the assistant editor. Five years later, he was the associate editor. Over the decades, the editors’ names changed; Fritz Guy remained. Later grouped with the consulting editors or on the editorial board, after 54 years, Fritz Guy holds the distinction of being the only person on the masthead of every single issue of the journal.
