TUSCALOOSA, Ala.--The Hearst Foundation has awarded a $35,000 grant to
Stillman College for an endowed scholarship fund. The award is part of the
Foundation's plan to give the school $100,000 over a three-year period, it
was announced by Stillman president Cordell Wynn. The donation was made
through the United Negro College Fund Campaign 2000. Stillman also
received a donation of $46,000 from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation of
Atlanta, Ga., as part of an annual commitment to help disadvantaged female
students at Stillman.
MEMPHIS, Tenn.--Professor Milton P. Brown of Rhodes College has written a
new book, "Biblical Prophets, Seers, and the New Apocalypticism," which
will be published by the Edwin Mellen Press. The book is one of many
written about "the last days" but provides an alternative approach to the
subject, using modern scholarship and encouraging readers to find for
themselves "the word of truth" in such difficult and misunderstood books as
Daniel and the Revelation to John.
