P.E. MacAllister was born in Wisconsin in the 1st quarter of the 20th century and received his B.A from Carroll College in Wisconsin in 1940. Dr. MacAllister is a prominent businessman and civic leader. He is an armchair authority on Old Testament. His book, "Tongue of the Nursling" deals with that work. He is knowledgeable in Greek and Roman history; is especially familiar with the Florentine Renaissance; wrote a series of essays in 1976 for AED's monthly publication on the Bi-Centennial and a second series in 1987 on the Constitutional Convention; is a member of the Board of the American Schools of Oriental Research, which monitors and authenticates archaeological excavation in the Middle East (this includes Syria, Jordan, Israel, Iraq, Cyprus, and sporadic digs in Egypt). He has received a Doctor of Laws Degree, Honoris Causa, from Indiana State University; a Doctor of Public Service Degree, Honoris Causa, from Christian Theological Seminary; and a Doctor of Humane Letters, Honoris Causa, from Carroll College. Along with C. Richard Petticrew, the two have created "The MacAllister-Petticrew Chair" of Old Testament Studies at Christian Theological Seminary. Mr. MacAllister has created "A Chair in Old Testament" at Carroll College. His lay understanding of the Bible is evident each summer when he preaches five or six times in Protestant churches. Mr. MacAllister's on-going love of opera has created the largest non-restricted vocal competition for opera singers in the nation (The MacAllister Awards).
