In the passing of Professor W. G. Polack on June 5 of this year, Concordia Theological Seminary, St. Louis, and our entire Synod lost one of its ablest Christian leaders. The lord had endowed Dr. Polack with a variety of gifts. He had given him a discerning mind, a courageous heart, an evangelical outlook, a facile pen, an intense love for the Church, and an unflagging zeal to promote the cause of his Savior. Fastidious in appearance, calm and suave in speech, considerate of the opinions of others, aware of his own sins and inadequacies, yet wholly committed to the grace of God which appeared in our lord Jesus Christ, Dr. Polack left an abiding impression on all who learned to know him.
