Memorial Service for Hofstra Trustee Emeritus Robert E. Brockway (B.B.A. ’46)

On April 19, 2009, family and friends gathered at Hofstra University to honor the life of Robert E. Brockway. Trustee Brockway’s devotion to Hofstra University, and especially the Zarb School, was profound, serving on the Hofstra University Board of Trustees from 1984 to 1995, assuming the roles of vice chair and chair of the University Relations Committee. In 1987 he became a professor of marketing, a senior executive-in-residence, and a special assistant to the dean. In 2006 Trustee Brockway and his wife were honored with the Marjorie and James M. Shuart Alumni Family Award for their many years of service and friendship to the University.
