Walter G. Muelder, dean of the Boston University School of Theology from 1945 to 1972, died of a heart attack on June 12 at age 97. Noted for his dedication to global ecumenism and racial equality in the post–World War II decades, Muelder continued to impress United Methodist colleagues even in his last week with his engagement in current issues.
