Notes from 2008

Wallace Viets ’44 M.Div. has enjoyed his service as pastor of Methodist Churches in New York and Connecticut, a term as a Methodist District Superintendent and four short-term interim pastorates in retirement. He was privileged to have two books published by Abingdon Press in the 1960s. He and his wife have four children and five grandchildren. Wallace’s inability to participate in Divinity School activities is painful, but he has wonderful memories and prays for the continuing significant service rendered for our Master by the school.
