John H. Hallowell
John H. Hallowell (1913-1991) was a political scientist. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard in 1935. He then received his master's from Duke where he would ultimately serve as a professor for 40 years until his death. Before receiving his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1939, he worked in 1930's Germany as a visiting academic in Heidelberg. After his return in 1938, he became an Episcopalian despite his previous renunciation of a Christian sect in which he had been raised. This was due in part to attending the lectures of Reinhold Niebuhr, which argued for political thought with a Christian foundation. He was the editor of Modern Canterbury Pilgrims and Why They chose the Episcopal church (1956), which included the Physicist and Episcopalian priest William G. Pollard among its Modern Canterbury Pilgrims.
