Biographical/Historical note

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.

Scope and Content

The collection contains materials collected in the office of Larry D. Hornbaker during his time at Pepperdine University in the capacity as Vice President for Development, Vice President for Administration, Acting Vice President for Finance, Senior Vice President, Executive Vice Chancellor, and Vice Chancellor. Files primarily relate to donors and donations, planning and construction of buildings and infrastructure on the Malibu campus, and materials generated from administrative work and activities at Pepperdine. Though Hornbaker started work at Pepperdine in 1969, materials date from 1950 to 2001 because of files inherited from his predecessors.
