Faculty

This post is a work in progress as I continue to sift through the archives to identify faculty members.

A bequest to the Long Beach City College Foundation by long-time English faculty member Marian Sims Baughn allowed the department to establish and maintain the Marian Sims Baughn Center for the Literary Arts.  The beautiful theater room looks as it does because of this bequest.

Thordis Haga was a long-time faculty member who taught German and math at the college.  She established a bequest which currently gives a generous scholarship to those students who earn President’s Scholar recognition at graduation.

Alicia Hill Lackman served in the English Depart from the 1950s through the 1990s, including a long stint at Department Chair.  Her stories about the history of the building have helped me to make sense of the connections between old pictures and the building as I have known it.

Don Drury graduated from the college in 1939.  He returned  by 1948 to teach English and American literature.  He advised the Viking and ran the Long Beach News Bureau through the 1950s.  In 1977, he published the 50 year history of the college; this source has been invaluable in setting me straight about so much of the history in this blog.  A creative writing award is given by the English Department each year with a bequest that Drury established.
