Biographical Sketch

Bible classes were taught in the Baptist Student Center in the early days of Texas Tech. Later, Bible Chairs were established. Bible classes were offered as electives and were taught by off-campus instructors at facilities provided by various local churches.

The donor of the materials, Dr. Ronald W. Jones, was the chairman of the department in the 1980s. The department is now defunct.
