Well known evangelist Billy Graham joined the Board in 1959 and longtime member C. Davis Weyerhaeuser in 1960. In 1963 the Board of Trustees appointed David Allan Hubbard, a Fuller graduate, to the office of president. Other outstanding appointees to the Board include Merlin Call in 1964, Max DePree in 1966; William Pannell, first African American on the Board, appointed in 1973; Gary Demarest, also a Fuller graduate, was appointed that same year as well as Joyce Penido, first Latina Trustee.
