History of Shaffer
Rev. Jack Shaffer joined the BBC faculty in 1948, teaching both New Testament and Greek. The popular young instructor became the first supervisor of the men’s dormitory and served as advisor to the sophomore class. A heart condition resulted in the 28-year old teacher’s death the following year. A few months later, the men’s dormitory was officially named “Shaffer Dorm” in his honor.
