WesternU Board Chairman Emeritus Warren Lawless Dies
Date:1/14/2014

Pomona, Calif. (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Warren Lawless, a pillar of Western University of Health Sciences and West Seattle who dedicated his life to service, has died. He was 95.

Lawless served more than 30 years on the Western University of Health Sciences Board of Trustees, taking the helm as chairman a scant 10 months after the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific’s inaugural class had graduated. He served as chairman until 2013, when he took on the title of Chairman Emeritus.

His background as a private businessman and as an advocate for education and osteopathic medicine – he served in several capacities for the Washington Osteopathic Medical Association (WOMA), including as its executive director and chief lobbyist – made him a perfect fit to lead the Board, said WesternU Founding President Philip Pumerantz, PhD. Lawless was the living bridge that connected pragmatic, growth-oriented business tactics with idealistic vision and enthusiasm.

“Indeed, much of what WesternU is today is the direct result not only of his business sense, but his passion for humanism and education,” Pumerantz said. “Warren had a staunch belief in the high quality of our students, faculty, and staff; a deep commitment to building and maintaining resources to match their talents and WesternU’s mission serving its communities; and an unwavering philosophy that anything was possible if we simply believed it could happen, and put the best of our hearts and minds into it.

“Those who knew and worked with Warren, and even those who only briefly met him, were always impressed by how positive and enthusiastic he was about WesternU, and about what an accomplishment he believed the University to be.”

Edwin Warren Lawless was born in Seattle, Washington on June 7, 1918. He was a veteran of World War II, serving as an electrician’s mate in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific Theater. After returning from military service
