Cliff Ganus engaged life in a number of ways.
In the academic world he was a scholar, a popular teacher and lecturer, and a university president and chancellor.
As a church leader he was an outstanding preacher, an elder for the College Church of Christ for fifty-four years, a designated representative of the Churches of Christ to three countries, committed to the spread of the gospel in this country and abroad, and a founder and director of a Christian academy in Africa.
As an adventurer he rode the Trans-Siberian Railway, climbed the Great Pyramid, visited 117 countries, made four seven-hundred-mile Mississippi River trips in a small boat, loved athletics as a participant and supporter, took friends and family fishing in Alaska every August, and never stopped exploring and learning.
He was a devoted and admired patriarch to his family, and he kept a list of over 500 friends whom he telephoned every year on their birthday.
This is his story of his life. For those who knew him it is a reminder of the joy and commitment which characterized him. Those in the Harding University and Church of Christ fellowships will recognize many of the people who play a role in the narrative.
For those who did not know him, this is an introduction to a man who was committed to God, family, and service, told with a dash of adventure and humor in his own words — an ordinary accounting of an extraordinary life.

Clifton L. Ganus, Jr., born in Hillsboro, Texas, moved to New Orleans with his family at the age of seven. In 1939 he enrolled in Harding College and met Louise Nicholas, from Strawberry, Arkansas, beginning two eighty-year relationships. He began teaching at Harding in 1946, earned his Ph.D. in history from Tulane University, and went on to serve Harding as department chair, vice president, president, chancellor, and chancellor emeritus. He served as an elder for the College Church of Christ for fifty-four years, traveled to 117 countries, lectured internationally, established a school in Uganda, and was active with family, athletics, fishing, exploring, adventuring, speaking, preaching, and mentoring throughout his life.
