The collection contains materials collected in the office of Larry D. Hornbaker during his time as an administrator at Pepperdine
University. Files primarily relate to development (fundraising, donors, and donations), planning and construction of buildings
and infrastructure on the Malibu campus, and materials generated from administrative work and activities at Pepperdine. Materials
date from 1950 to 2001.
Larry D. Hornbaker was hired in 1969 as the Vice President for Development. His goal was to raise money for the construction
of the Malibu campus, and he and the Development team raised $24.6 million to move the campus from 79th and Vermont in Los
Angeles to Malibu in just over two years. Hornbaker eventually took on other duties and job titles, including the Vice President
for Administration, Acting Vice President for Finance, Senior Vice President, Executive Vice Chancellor, and Vice Chancellor.
One of his major involvements aside from fundraising was supervising construction projects on the Malibu campus, including
faculty and staff housing, the Lovernich and George Page Apartments, the Pendleton Computer Science Center, the Field Heritage
Hall, and Smothers Theatre. After working at Pepperdine for 33 and a half years, he retired in December, 2002.
