This chapter focuses on Duke K. McCall, who succeeded Fuller as president of the seminary. McCall entered office anticipating a struggle over the seminary's direction. A dissident faction of the faculty sought effective control of the school and was leading it toward the values and ambitions of the “nondenominational seminaries of the Northeast.” Trustees and other faculty members opposed the dissidents' aims. Trustees vested in the president the authority to determine the direction of the seminary, and they expected the seminary to serve the needs and beliefs of Southern Baptist churches, not of New England divinity schools. McCall sought to lead the school jointly with the faculty while keeping his executive authority theoretical.
