Clifton Inam

OVC Mourns Passing of
Friend and Founder, Inman

Clifton Inman: 1915-1990

   Clifton Inman, 74, one of the founding fathers of Ohio Valley College, died of a massive stroke Oct. 6 in Fairmont, W. Va.
   At the time of his death, he was a minister for the Norway Church of Christ in Fairmont where he had served since his retirement from OVC in 1986 as associate professor in Bible.
   Kevin Ramsey, chairman of the board of trustees, gave this tribute: "Clifton Inman has a rightful claim to the title Mr. OVC. He was there at the beginning of the college, and he has been there as long as he was granted the time to share his life of service with us. The board of trustees express their deep appreciation for Cliff's devotion and dedication to Ohio Valley College. He will truly be missed by all of us."
   "Ohio Valley College, Christian education, and the church have lost a friend," said President E. Keith Stotts. "Clifton Inman was a Moses in the Ohio Valley. People loved and respected him as a leader and forerunner. In relation to the college, he was a Joshua. He helped clear the land and lead the constituency to support Christian education. Few Bible instructors have gained more respect from the Ohio Valley Bible majors than Brother Inman. The Inman Bible Forum will always herald his scholarship, his dedication to the college, and his sacrifice for young people."
   Inman's service to the college spanned three decades beginning in 1956 when he was a member of the original steering committee which laid the groundwork for the college. He was a charter member of the board of trustees, which was formed in 1957. He also had the distinction of being the first salaried employee of the college as a fund-raiser beginning in 1957. The $318,000 he raised was used to purchase the site of the present campus and to begin construction of the buildings.
   Inman directed the first OVC lectureship in 1959 and continued as director for seven years. He also originated the Elder/Preacher Appreciation Dinner.
   In 1970 he began to teach Bible on a part-time basis and joined the full-time faculty in 1973.
   The Inman Bible Forum was established in his honor in 1983. This scholarly lecture series is held the first Thursday and Friday each November in recognition of his contributions to the church and the college.
   During the appreciation dinner held at his retirement in 1986, Inman gave this challenge: "Let every administrator at Ohio Valley College, every board member, every faculty member, every staff member be a strong Christian who puts service to Christ ahead of everything else and who imbues the students who come here with the same resolve."
   The future of the college, he said, "depends upon each of us and our willingness to serve both God and man."
   Service to the church has been the primary focus in Inman's life. He was on the program committee that planned the first Ohio Valley Lectureship in 1944. He was a minister for congregations in Texas, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and West Virginia and spoke at numerous lectureship programs.
   Inman also wrote several books including Exegesis of Select New Testament Passages on the New Birth and Study Guide to Old Testament Literature. He also wrote numerous articles for religious periodicals and edited two publications, For Your Soul and Bible Herald. He was owner of the Bible Herald Bookstore from 1960-1973.
   Originally from Denton, Texas, Inman held the B.A. (English) and the M.A. (Bible) from Abilene Christian College.
   He is survived by his wife, Pauline Watts Inman; six children, all of whom attended OVC; Sonya Hescht, Bremen, Ohio; Roger, Williamstown, W. VA.; Michael and Stanley, Parkersburg; Paul, Mineral Wells, W. Va.; and Cynthia DiLucia, Conegliano, Italy; one brother, George Inman, Denton, Texas; two sisters, Winnie Ann Arant, Greenville, Texas, and Ethel Frady of Eurica Springs, Ark.; 17 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
   Dr. Charles Aebi, professor in Bible at OVC, conducted the funeral service Oct. 9 at the Camden Avenue Church of Christ.
