LOS ANGELES - Elie Wiesel will take up temporary residence in Southern California next spring, and in each of the following four years, to teach at Chapman University.

Appointment of the Nobel Laureate, author and Holocaust survivor as Distinguished Presidential Fellow was announced August 25 by Jim Doti, president of Chapman University, a private institution founded by devout Christians.

According to a Chapman news release, Wiesel noted that "On my two visits to Chapman University I was profoundly impressed by the quality of the students and faculty … and by the way the university is teaching and remembering some of the most tragic events in human history, events that have had such a deep influence upon my life."

Chapman University is located in Orange, some 45 miles south of Los Angeles, and was founded in 1861 by members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). During the 1920s, while located in Los Angeles, it was known as the California Christian College.
