Born a Canadian in 1911, George Eldon Ladd moved to New England where he became an American citizen. His theological education began at Gordon Divinity School. His formal education was continued at Harvard from which he received a doctorate in 1949 for a study of eschatology in the Didache. A move to California followed with his acceptance of a post at Fuller Theological Seminary in 1950 where he remained until his retirement in 1978 and his death in 1982.
