AS IN the 1968 season, the staff of the 1971 Heshbon expedition consisted of a number of professionals and students from both foreign countries and Jordan. The 52 staff members represented a variety of religious affiliations and nationalities: 19 were Seventh-day Adventists and formed the largest single group, but the Lutheran, Methodist, Swedenborgian, Catholic, and Baptist churches were also represented. Our Jordanian colleagues professed the Islamic faith. The foreign group, which comprised 40 people, consisted chiefly of United States citizens; others were nationals of Canada, Britain, Norway, Germany, and Holland. In this group, were 16 professors in universities, colleges, or theological seminaries, 18 graduate students, one editor, and one medical doctor.
