James M. Houston 

James Houston is the one of the “founding fathers” of Regent College. In 1966, while he was University Lecturer at Oxford (where he taught from 1947 to 1971, specializing in cultural and historical geography), James Houston was invited by a committee of Granville Chapel to become the first Principal of Regent College.

If you would like to visit Dr. Houston in person at the hospital, we have set up a new, simple calendar which will allow Dr. Houston to have up to three visits per day.  The visits will be scheduled in one hour increments, for you to use as little or much of the hour as you like.  There is comfortable space in his room for a maximum of  three guests at a time. 

Thank you
