On behalf of the College of Liberal Arts, we would like to take this time to recognize the passing of a former faculty member, Thomas Trombetas. Below is an obituary written by Dr. Barry Steiner, Professor of Political Science at CSULB:
Thomas Trombetas, Emeritus Professor of Political Science, passed away in Greece on November 2, 2013 at the age of 88 after a long illness. A long-time member of the Political Science Department Faculty, he joined the Department in 1961 and retired in 1989. He specialized in comparative government, teaching courses on Western European governments and Roman Jurisprudence and the Graduate Seminar in Comparative Government in addition to the freshman-level American Political Institution course. A native of Greece, he actively worked on the politics of his native country and, later in his career, European Union political and economic problems.
