Cal State Fullerton Emeritus Professor
Bernard Hyink Dies
Bernard L. Hyink, retired professor of political
science and director of the Center for Internships and Cooperative
Education, emeritus, at Cal State Fullerton, died June 24. The Fullerton
resident was 91 years old.
He joined the Cal State Fullerton faculty in 1960
— the first year classes were held on the campus’s permanent
site — and a decade later served for two years as president
of California State University, Sacramento.
Hyink returned to CSUF in 1973 to teach and also launched
the Center for Internships and Cooperative Education that same year,
serving as its inaugural director. The center was the first of its
kind on the West Coast.
He also served as president of the Cooperative Education
& Internship Association from 1980-81 and was president of the
CSUF Emeriti Association from 1984-85. He retired in 1981.
Hyink co-authored the widely used textbook “Politics
and Government in California,” first published in 1959 with
co-authors Seyom Brown and Ernest W. Thacker. The latest edition
was published this year with co-author David Provost, professor
of political science at Fresno State.
During the 1940s, Hyink frequently was called upon
for assignments with the federal and state governments. He also
served as a professor at the University of Tehran in 1956. Hyink
received his B.A. from the University of Redlands, his M.A. from
UC Berkeley and Ph.D. from USC.
He is survived by his wife, June, of Fullerton; two
daughters, Shirley Kramer of Washington, D.C., and Barbara Hyink
of Carlsbad; a brother, Donald, of Glendale; and two grandchildren.
