HH: But Henry Morris co-authored his most famous book, The Genesis 
Flood, after having been requested to do so by Dr. John C. Whitcomb, 
who in later years was Professor of Theology and Old Testament at 
Grace Theological Seminary and Director of Postgraduate Studies. 
Whitcomb wanted to publish his Th.D. dissertation and desired a 
scientist to write the sections on flood science. Morris had majored 
in hydraulics with a particular interest in investigating how the 
power of water would have worked in the Flood.
