A Bearded Faculty

In this final of 3 installments that began with (1) Cinco De Mustache, and continued with (2) Great Mustaches of Multnomah Past, you'll be treated to some of Multnomah's most notorious beards. As is the case with the venerable mustache, they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Not everyone can grow a "Grizzly Adams" or "Kenny Rogers", but not everyone has to.

After a little more digging through Multnomah's archives, here's what we found:


Dr. Al Baylis
(Seminary Prof)

If there were an award for the longest-standing beard among Multnomah's faculty, Dr. Baylis would win, hands down (at least as far as we can prove).

Then (1976, 1982, 1987, and 1990)

Now
Baylis 2006


Dr. Garry Friesen
(College Prof)

Before he wore the mustache featured in the Mustache post, Dr. Friesen had one of the fullest beards on campus for several years.

Then (1982, 1983, 1985, and 1987)

I've dubbed the last photo "Scary Gary." You do NOT want to turn in his assignments late!

Dr. Philip Johnson
(Seminary prof and Librarian)

I've always been impressed by Dr. Johnson's stately goatee.

Now

Dr. John Terveen
(Seminary prof)

Through my research, I saw only two (non-consecutive) years during which Dr. Terveen wore a beard, but who's counting?

Then (1993)

Dr. Dale Wheeler
(College prof)

Make no mistake, this is an impressively timeless beard!

Then (1990 and 1993)

Now
Wheeler 2005


Notable Mentions

I couldn't locate any old photos of Dr. Calvin Blom, but he has a beard worthy of tribute.

Dr. Scalberg, who made an appearance on the Mustaches post, astounded me with his wide range of style over the years. While I never found photos of him with a true beard, I found these two "almost" beards.

The "soul patch" (1982)
Scalberg 1982

The "fake" beard (1987)
Scalberg 1987
(I'd love to hear the story behind this one)

We sincerely hope you have enjoyed this stroll down Multnomah's "memory lane" - a true tribute to Cinco De Mustache.

Cheers!

Beautiful! I love Dr. G’s – very scary Gary!

The Scalberg “fake beard” was a tradition for his history class (I believe that it was History of Christianity). He would come to class dressed up as John Calvin once a semester. Cool, huh?! ^_^
