Chapter fifty-five examines Hodge’s fifty-teaching jubilee celebration held at the Seminary in 1872. More than five hundred attended, and he called the event: “the apex of my life.” It was the first such academic celebration of a professor to be held in the United States, following a tradition that was common in European institutions of higher learning. It was during these ceremonies that Hodge uttered his oracular statement: “a new idea never originated in this Seminary.” Just nine months after the event, Hodge’s brother, Hugh, died.
