Jack MacGorman donates personal library to Southwestern Seminary

J.W. “Jack” MacGorman, long-time professor of New Testament at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and namesake for the MacGorman Chapel and Performing Arts Center, is donating his personal library to the seminary.

“Dr. MacGorman is an incredible treasure of Gospel faithfulness who gave more than five decades in service to Southwestern Seminary,” says President Adam W. Greenway. “That he would now honor this institution with his library, papers, and other valuable items is even more evidence still of the blessing he has been to the seminary. A long-beloved and honored figure, Dr. MacGorman is the epitome of what it means to be a Southwesterner.”

MacGorman, who will celebrate his 100th birthday in December, devoted his career to the teaching and training of its students.

“We figure he has likely taught more [Southwestern] students than anyone has or ever will,” says MacGorman’s daughter, Linda, noting his first job after completing his first degree at the school was to begin teaching seminary students. 

A two-time graduate of Southwestern, MacGorman began teaching at the seminary in 1948 when he joined the seminary faculty as professor of New Testament. He ultimately served for 53 years, retiring in 2001.
