Gordon J. VanderBrug Scholarship

As a 25 year old Calvin instructor, Gordon J. VanderBrug believed that computers were vital to a college education. As a result, during the 1968-1969 academic year, he taught the first computer science class in Calvin's history. Undeterred by the fact that the college did not have a computer, he found a local engineering company who was willing to let the students use its computer in the evening hours. Nearly thirty interested students and faculty, including fifteen in his numerical analysis class, completed the course. Calvin is grateful for Gordon VanderBrug's generous efforts on behalf of his students and the college.
