B.H. Carroll’s Commission to L.R. Scarborough

On his deathbed in 1914, B.H. Carroll, the founder of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, gave this charge to his successor and friend, L.R. Scarborough.

Lee, keep the Seminary lashed to the cross.

Each day I’m reminded of the honor and privilege it truly is to study here.

The Southern Baptist Convention, 1845-1953 by William W. Barnes
