Paul E. Parker was the seventh President of George Fox College from 1950-1952. Parker was a pastor in the Friends Church. Parker was an encouraging President during a difficult period in the history of the college. While he was unable to accomplish accreditation during his term as President, his kind nature was very encouraging to the students who knew him. One alumni, Ralph Beebe, tell a story that Parker personally paid for his tuition one semester, a move that made it possible for Beebe to continue his education.
