A precursor institution to the Orthodox Presbyterian Church was known as the Presbyterian Constitutional Covenant Union. Take a look at this expansion of an area of a picture taken of the PCCU and see if you can find Gordon Clark and Cornelius Van Til.

  1. I wonder if that is Clark’s wife sitting next to him? The lady in the fur coat?

    Interesting. I tried to figure out which is Gordon Clark, but I am not sure. Is he the second person, on the second row from the front?

      You are correct. And in front of him his is good friend J. Oliver Buswell, then President of Wheaton College. Behind him is E.J. Young, a professor at Westminster.
