In the second of a three-part series, historian Gil Valentine focuses his analysis on the main characters in his book Ostriches and Canaries: Coping with Change in Adventism, 1966-1979. For this conversation, Valentine explores the motivations and methods of Richard Hammill, president of Andrews University. We explore the difficulties he tried to navigate, including church administrator concerns about the scholarly work and beliefs of faculty.
