Clarence J. Handlogten came to Hope College from the Big Dutchman Division of U.S. Industries, Inc. of Zeeland in 1966 to become the college’s Director of Business Affairs. His college education was received at Grand Rapids Junior College, Davenport College (A.S.) and Detroit College of Business (B.S.). In 1968, he was promoted to the position of treasurer. While holding the position of treasurer and business manager, he was appointed to the position of executive vice-president and chairman of the executive council, predecessor of the present Board of Trustees. In this position, he worked with Dr. William Vander Lugt, chancellor, to conduct the business of the college typically done by the president of the college. At that time, the position of president was vacant due to the resignation of President Calvin Vander Werf in August 1970, and run by an executive council comprised of members of the administration.
Handlogten left Hope College in 1972 to take a position at Howard Sluyter of Dallas, Texas, in the development of new business enterprises in the field of ecological products. During his time at Hope College, he helped to erase a financial deficit while building the De Witt Center and new departments. In 1974, with a master’s degree from Southern Methodist University, Handlogten returned to Holland to serve as vice president of marketing for Modern Partitions, Inc. (later Haworth).
