1986 – Dozier Film

Seinan Gakuin in Fukuoka City, Japan, was founded as a small school for boys in 1916. The principal founder was Charles Kelsey Dozier, who arrived in Japan as a Southern Baptist missionary in 1906.

It was my privilege to serve as a full-time professor at Seinan Gakuin University from September 1968 to 2004 and as Chancellor of Seinan Gakuin for two four-year terms beginning in April 1996.

In 1986 as part of the 70th anniversary celebration of Seinan Gakuin’s founding, a film of the life of C.K. Dozier was produced with the title “Love and Sword: The Life of C.K. Dozier.” 

I was asked to play the part of Dozier in the movie, and to do that I had to shave off my beard for the first time since I grew it in 1972. June and Karen also appeared in the movie as Mrs. Dozier and their daughter Helen. 

The pictures below are the two sides of a flyer used to publicize the TV movie, which was first broadcast on October 7. On the front I am walking as Dozier along the beach west of Fukuoka, and on the back I am representing Dozier preaching in Chapel and the bottom picture is June as Mrs. Dozier talking with me as Dozier at his desk.
