Remembering Peter Ristau
Professor Peter Ristau passed away in Edmonton on May 21, 2013. Hired as professor of Old Testament at NABC (now Taylor), Peter taught for 25 years until health issues forced him to go on long-term disability. Although his teaching career was halted in 1997, he officially retired in 2005; he was one of the longest-serving faculty members in Taylor's history.
