L. Baird Tipson

After thirty-odd years as a college administrator, including eight rewarding years as Gettysburg College’s first Provost, Baird Tipson retired in 2010 to devote his attention to teaching and research. As an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Religious Studies, he teaches a course on the Protestant and Catholic Reformations each Spring. He is presently editing Samuel Stone’s Whole Body of Divinity, the first systematic work of any kind to be written in North America, for the website of the Congregational Library, and is preparing a manuscript on Stone and his more famous colleague Thomas Hooker for publication. His present research focuses on the English background of the first settlers of New England, but his broader interests include the entire history of Christianity including the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.
