E.Y. Mullins is a noted Southern Baptist theologian. In addition, he served for 28 years as president of the Southern Baptist Seminary beginning around the turn of the 1900’s.
So what’s the connection? After finishing high school in Corsicana, Texas, Mullins attended Texas A&M University. Since Mullins was born in 1860 and A&M didn’t begin until 1876, this suggests that he was one of the earliest graduates from the institution.
After his time at A&M, Mullins later went on to be a student at SBTS. Then, he became president of the seminary and helped to restore its health after the Whitsitt Controversy. Though not everyone agrees with Mullins’ theology, everyone agrees that his influence on Southern Baptist life is undeniable.
