About William Edward Moneyhun
William is a researcher in symbolic and interpretive anthropology, and the author of The New New Zealand: The Māori and Pākehā Populations. His essays include “The Synergistic Synthesis of Cultures: As Illustrated by a Causal Meeting of Cultural Symbols in New Zealand” (2013) and “The Spinning of the Webs: The Dynamic Processes of Culture and Religion and the Potential for Religio-Cultural Synergistic Synthesis” (2014). William was born in the North Mississippi city of Tupelo in 1946, but grew to adulthood in the West Tennessee town of Trenton where he completed his high school education in 1964. He was awarded his diploma in “Higher Accounting and Office Management” from West Tennessee Business College, Jackson, Tennessee, in 1967. William received his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Mid-Continent College, Mayfield, Kentucky, in 1972, and his Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree from Midwestern Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1978, at which graduation he was presented with the Baker Book House Award in Theology. He began studies with the Graduate Theological Foundation (GTF), Mishawaka, Indiana, in 2010. He received his Master of Theology (Th.M.) degree in 2013, at which ceremony the GTF awarded him The Clifford Geertz Prize in the Anthropology of Religion. He received his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Theological Studies in 2017, at which convocation the GTF named him a John Macquarrie Fellow. His academic credits include studies at the University of Oxford Theology Summer School, Oxford, United Kingdom; Auckland University of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand; and the Center for Process Studies, Claremont, California. Sandwiched between the two master’s degrees is William’s twenty-five year employment with Southwestern Bell Telephone Company and four year service with Walmart. William’s interests include reading, walking, and bicycling; but he also enjoys good company, tasty food, pleasant wine, and the music of most genres.
