The event paid tribute to Prof. Emeritus Arthur Glynn, former Assoc. Prof. Frederick Zappala and Joseph L. Sweeney Professor of Accounting Stanley Dmohowski, who is retiring this month after 51 years of service to Boston College. Administrators, faculty, former students and family members joined in commemorating their combined total of over 136 years of service to Boston College.
All three were part of the second wave of full-time faculty hired after World War II, and were among the first non-Jesuit faculty, according to CSOM Dean John Neuhauser.
"They all took very good care of so many students for so long and really established the department's connection to the professional accounting community," Neuhauser said, "which has helped many of our graduates obtain quality jobs over the years."
Glynn joined the faculty in 1946, served as department chairman from 1953-75 and retired in 1986. Zappala, who joined the faculty in 1948, succeeded Glynn as chairman. He stepped down in 1981 and retired in 1993. Both continued to teach part time after their retirements, as will Dmohowski next fall.
