David Allan Hubbard (B.A., B.D., Th.M., Ph.D., D.D., L.H.D., Lit.D.) (1928 -1993), an ordained minister of the American Baptist Church, was a member of the third entering class of Fuller Theological Seminary, a 1952 graduate. He began his career as a professor of biblical studies at Westmont College in Santa Barbara; he served Fuller Theological Seminary as professor of Old Testament and then as president from 1963-1993. During these years he led the school to become one of the world's largest interdenominational seminaries, adding in 1965 a School of Psychology and a School of World Mission (now School of Intercultural Studies) to complement the School of Theology. An Old Testament scholar, Hubbard wrote four commentaries on the Old Testament and served as a general editor of the Word Biblical Commentary until his death. He published 36 books in all. He was widely acknowledged as a leader in the evangelical community, in theological scholarship and in higher education and was in constant demand as a speaker and lecturer. He also played a key role in bringing together previously separate segments of the evangelical community in new coalitions and in encouraging women to develop their gifts through the Office of Women's Concerns and the mandatory use of inclusive language at Fuller Theological Seminary.
