This weekend, the Max De Pree Center for Leadership and the Trustees of Fuller Theological Seminary will celebrate the gift of The Max De Pree Collection from Max and Esther De Pree to the Fuller Community. Max De Pree is an influential former Fuller board member and was a close personal friend and mentoree of David Allan Hubbard, former president of Fuller Theological Seminary. He is also a well known business and former CEO of Herman Miller Corporation and is the author of the best selling books Leadership Is an Art and Leadership Jazz. In 2005, after 40 years of service, Max De Pree retired from the Board of Trustees, but his legacy is continued by the Max De Pree Center for Leadership. In 2006, Max De Pree made a donation of some of his papers, books, periodicals and media to the De Pree Center. Brianna Nystrom, the archivist at the Max De Pree Center is nearing the completion of this archive and for the next three weeks, a preview of the Max De Pree Collection will be on display in the Hubbard Library’s entrance area.
