Lebanon. Illinois is a small, semirural
community of 3.600 people, located 23
miles from downtown St. Louis, Missou-
ri, situated on the old Vincennes trail to
St. Louis trail. Lebanon was incorporat-
ed as a town in 1857. Lebanon was re-
ferred to by Charles Dickens in his book
American Notes. The author stayed
overnight in Lebanon's Mermaid Inn
while on his travels through the Midwest
to view the Looking Glass Prairie. Leba-
non offers shops and entertainment es-
tablishments, including the Looking
Glass Playhouse Community Theater.
McKendree College was founded February
20, 1828. in Lebanon, Illinois, by a group of
pioneer Methodists. McKendree's campus re-
veals its historical background. Bothwell Chap-
el was constructed in 1858. It is home to the
oldest bell in North America. The bell which
rings out each hour and half-hour, was origin-
ally cast in 8lh century Spain. Stephenson
house, is where the president of the college re-
sides. Old Main, completed in 1851, is the ol-
dest surviving building at McKendree. Benson-
wood art building once served as the library for
McKendree. Voigt Science Hall houses
McKendree's largest classrooms and laborato-
ries. BEARCAT gymnasium was originally
built as a temporary structure in 1958. It was
used for many years for McKendree's intercol-
legiate sporting events. It is now being used for
intramural sports and greek offices. Holman
library was built in 1969 and replaced Benson-
wood as the college's library. The first floor of
Wildy Hall was built by students in 1868. In
1916. two floors were added. The building now
houses the business office, financial aid, admis-
sions, public relations, and the office of the
president. Eisenmeyer auditorium was once
McKendree's gymnasium. It now serves as a
theater and includes a mailroom and music
rooms. Clark Hall was once a women's dormi-
tory. It now consists of classrooms, offices, and
a computer center. Carnegie Hall was once a
men's dormitory. It now consists of classrooms
and faculty offices. The land for Hypes field
was donated to the college by a wealthy family
who took an interest in the growth and well
being of McKendree College. McKendree
Hypes Chamberlain was once president of
McKendree. When the Civil War broke out in
1861. McKendreens rushed to defend the
Union. 1 50 of the 200 students at the college
volunteered for Federal service. McKendree
contributed at least 6 generals, 30 other offi-
cers, and 500 enlisted men to the Northern
ranks. They made up the 1 17th Illinois Volun-
teer Infantry — known as the McKendree Col-
lege Regiment. Many of the trees on McKen-
dree's front lawn were planted in memory of
McKendree militiamen who died in the civil
war. Every spring, weather permitting, gradu-
ation is held on the front lawn where tiny white
flowers cover the ground, making it look like
snow. McKendree College is the oldest college
in the State of Illinois, the 97th oldest in the
United States and the oldest institution of
higher learning maintaining continuous ties
with the United Methodist Church.
The Melvin Price
was dedicated in Octo-
ber, 1988. McKendree
College is proud of its
newest facility. The
gymnasium is used for
classes, varsity athlet-
ics, concerts, and a va-
riety of other activities.
A weight room is also
open for student use.
Outside, tennis courts
and a softball and
baseball field compli-
ment the center.
In the summer of 1 987 a fountain was installed on
upper campus. The fountain wtiich is surrounded
by flowers in the spring and summer was anony-
mously donated by an alumnus of the college.
After the Convocation Center was finished, the bleach-
ers were removed from the old gymnasium and greek
offices were built.
The annual homecoming parade is held the morning
of the formal dance. Many of the groups on campus
enter floats and decorate cars to participate in the event.

Dr. Gerrit TenBrink
Gerrit J. TenBrink became president of McKendree College in 1979. During
his tenure the college has dramatically rebounded from a precarious existence to a
thriving one. The college's recent 1 0-year maximum reaccreditation by the North
Central Association of Colleges and Schools is testimony to the academic and
financial success that has graced McKendree during the past decade — under
President TenBrink's leadership.
Since 1979 president TenBrink has insisted on balancing the college's budget
while eliminating an operational debt of nearly $1 million. Accompanying this
fiscal success, McKendree's enrollment has more than doubled, the quality of
faculty has improved, faculty salaries have risen nearly 90 percent, the campus
has been renovated and beautified, and the college in 1988 built and dedicated a
new and much-needed convocation center — one of President TenBrink's prou-
President TenBrink obtained his bachelor of arts degree in 1956 from Calvin
College, where his major was history and his minors were sociology and speech.
He obtained his master of arts degree from Michigan State University, where
he majored in education administration with concentration in sociology and
He earned his Ed.D. from George Washington University in 1 966, again with a
major in education administration; concentration in educational philosophy, re-
search, curriculum, and adult education.
Before coming to McKendree, Dr. TenBrink was vice president for the Council
for the Advancement of Small Colleges from 1974-79.
From 1967 to 1976, he was dean of the college and professor of education at
Grand Rapids Baptist College in Michigan.
From 1964-67 he held three separate positions — acting assistant dean for
academics affairs, director of off-campus education courses, and director of
educational projects — at George Washington University.
From 1953-64, President TenBrink held various administrative and teaching
positions in public education.

My four years at McKendree have
come to an end. My wish for McKen-
dree is to find someone to step in as
editor. This person should be creative in
working with other students, faculty,
and staff at McKendree to create a
book that captures all aspects of
McKendree College and the McKen-
dree College Community. Thanks to ev-
eryone who worked with me during my
two years as editor. Special thanks to
my assistant editor, Carol, for being so
dedicated. Thanks to Sheri Boehm and
Beth Jacobs for doing all of the "foot-
work" involved in getting this book to
production, and thanks to everyone who
contributed to the success of the book in
any way. This book would not have been
possible without everyone's dedication
