Lipscomb’s Mack Wayne Craig dies
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.
He spoke at gospel meetings and is remembered for leading singing at the 1962 Collins-Craig meeting, attended by more than 90,000 people.
“During an association spanning nearly 70 years, Mack Craig was instrumental in the growth of Lipscomb
University,” said Randy Lowry, the university’s president. “As one of the most recognizable names among Churches of Christ, Dr. Craig encouraged thousands toward a closer relationship with God and lives of faith and service.”
Craig was an active member of the Crieve Hall Church of Christ in Nashville.
