All Hail Max Carter

May 18, 2015

On QuakerQuaker this morning I posted a brief appreciation of Max Carter for his quarter century as Director of Friends Center at Guilford College.

Yes, Max is one of those Carters, one of the stalwart families of Western Yearly Meeting. He avoided Earlham as an undergraduate (he went to Ball State), but received his M.Div. from ESR in 1975. I first met him at Germantown Meeting in the mid-late 1980s. I was a youngish political science professor at Temple University (and a new Friend) and he was completing a Ph.D. in Religion.

    I remember Max and Jane as “Head Residents” of Bundy in the mid 1970’s. They were not much older than we were (but just enough). They were role models…friendly, welcoming, present but not intrusive. Earlham’s loss and Guilford’s gain, twenty five years of good work, done well. Congratulations Max!
