Whittier Law School yesterday renamed its law library in honor of Professor J. Denny Haythorn, who is retiring after 39 years of service, which makes him the longest serving current employee.
Haythorn was responsible in 1976 for establishing the original law library at the Hancock Park campus in Los Angeles, which was a key component in the school’s gaining ABA accreditation. He then saw the library through its transition to the much larger facility in Costa Mesa, and through the digital revolution that has transformed libraries.
“I know of no one who has given more and given so unselfishly to this law school than Denny Haythorn,” said Dean Penelope Bryan. “As the head librarian he has provided inspirational leadership, fiscal responsibility, and stellar service to faculty, staff and the public. As a teacher he has provided an excellent role model of professionalism, a thoughtfully designed educational experience, and a deep commitment to the success of our students and graduates. As a colleague, Denny has always put the law school’s wellbeing at the forefront of all his actions.”
