Dr. Ed Curtis taught Old Testament and Hebrew at Biola and Talbot for 40 years and also team-taught a Rosemead class called Psychology and Christian Thought with various Rosemead profs for 15 years or so. He graduated from Baylor with a physics degree and worked as a physicist/engineer for  8 years before going to Seminary and Grad school (University of Pennsylvania). He went to Baylor on a track scholarship and was a high jumper for my 4 years there. Dr. Curtis met my wife in Mexico and Central America on a missions trip and we have been married for 56 years and have 2 sons and 2 grandkids. Fun fact: Dr. Curtis grew up in a small town in Texas which is where he learned to talk.
