Fresno (Cal.) Pacific University history professor for 44 years, Paul Toews, son of MB pastor J.B. Toews and Nettie Unruh, retired in July. Toews is the author of Mennonites in American Society, 1930–1970. At least 14 of his history students have gone on to complete doctorates. While leading 15 Mennonite Heritage tours to Ukraine, Toews copied 200,000 pages of Tsarist and Soviet records for the Center for MB Studies, Fresno, creating the largest collection of its kind in the U.S. In retirement, he’ll continue leading tours and mining historical treasures.
