Lipscomb’s Mack Wayne Craig dies

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Longtime preacher, educator and historian Mack Wayne Craig died March 1. He was 85.
Craig was principal of David Lipscomb High School in Nashville, Tenn., from 1949 to 1957. He served as academic dean of David Lipscomb College (now Lipscomb University) from 1957 to 1978.
