Short Biographical Sketch

I did a quick Google search and found some interesting information about Rev. Lawrence Keister here.

Lawrence W. Keister, 1907-1912
Lawrence Keister helped bring stability back to Lebanon Valley College. He renovated the landscape of campus adding over 1,000 feet of walkways. Keister renovated the buildings on campus and equipped the labs with the latest materials. He denied athletic scholarships because he wanted academics to be the primary focus of the College. Keister's major accomplishment was balancing the debt.

I wonder if Rev. Keister ever enjoyed playing football on a crisp autumn day. . . I suspect that even with his emphasis on academics and away from sports he might have enjoyed a quick pick up game of football--if he could find anyone on campus who would still play with him!
