Claude Walton McBride Sr. (ABJ ’55), an unofficial chaplain of the UGA football team and former associate director of the Office of Alumni Relations, died in August at the age of 81.

He later earned bachelor of divinity and master of theology degrees from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., and became pastor of Milledge Avenue Baptist Church in 1964.

He became associate director of alumni relations in 1983.
