"Why should Ministers Go to College?" Under this caption the Rev. Carl Hamilton Morgan of Philadelphia wrote an article in the September 17 issue of the Watchman--Examiner, a national Baptist weekly. In his introductory remarks he calls attention to the fact that before the Revolutionary War of nine universities found in the United States all but one were established for the express purpose of training men for the Christian ministry, that until very recent times the history of higher education in this country is largely the history of ministerial education, that the Bachelor of Arts degree was in most of the older colleges a theological degree, but that in the course of time the study of theology lost its place in the college program.
