The Last Texas Baptist

If you will permit us a moment of somber reflection and mourning, the BearMeat Editorial Board would like to express its profound sorrow at the passing of Herb Reynolds. We wish to extend our sympathies and prayers to the family and friends of Dr. Reynolds, who truly represented the best of Baylor University, and under whose leadership Baylor thrived and flourished. May God have mercy on us.


  • I was a Lariat staffer during Reynolds' tenure as EVP, and interviewed him more than once. He was known to tape his interviews and to call the Lariat if he was misquoted. But he never ever complained about article slant or anything else, and God knows administrators at Baylor had plenty to criticize about Lariat article slant in those days. Dr. Reynolds was a class act.

  • Thanks, LoomisBoy. Herb was pure class - thanks to him Baylor carved out a unique identity between the SBC conservatives and the "secularization" path taken by many former religious schools. We all owe him a debt of gratitutde. His commitment to Baylor is reflected in his request to have his love of The B engraved on the monument.
