Dr. Richard Etulain graduated with high honors from NNC with a B.A. in English and a B.A. in history. He then earned a master’s degree in American literature and a Ph.D. in American history and literature at the University of Oregon.

As a historian, his writings have won several awards, and he was honored as president of both the Western Literature and Western History Associations. As an author, Dr. Etulain approached the writing of “Seeking First the Kingdom: A Centennial History” as an academic excursion. As such, his presentation of NNU is largely driven by his sources— thousands of letters and personal files.

In this video, Dr. Etulain discusses how he compiled the mountain of information and the tension of writing a credible history on a subject so close to his heart.
