John F. Walvoord

Dr. Chafer’s choice of John F. Walvoord (ThM, 1934; ThD, 1936), his protégé and associate since 1935, to be his successor as president was confirmed soon after Dr. Chafer’s death. In addition to his outstanding administrative skills, Dr. Walvoord was a leading dispensational, premillennial theologian. He served as professor of systematic theology for fifty years and authored and edited more than thirty biblical and theological works, many in prophetic studies. He served as the second president of DTS from 1952 to 1986.
