Myron Houghton (1941–2020)

Longtime ETS member Myron Houghton died on July 14, 2020, in Ankeny, Iowa, due to complications from COVID-19. He was 78. He joined ETS in 1962 and remained active in the group until his death, one of our longest-tenured members.

Houghton earned a PhD from Dallas Seminary (1971) and a ThD from Concordia Seminary of St. Louis (1986). A Baptist who specialized in theological method and comparative theology, he also held degrees from Methodist, Catholic, Brethren, and Orthodox seminaries. His twin brother, George, also earned a doctorate at Dallas; both taught at Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa. An online tribute is posted at the Baptist Bulletin website.
