Arizona leaders praise legacy of Phoenix philanthropist Gary Herberger, who has died at 79 - AZCentral.com

Monday, March 13, 2017

Gary Herberger graduated from the Judson School in Scottsdale and went on to study at Pomona College in California and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as with the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright.He worked for an Arizona architecture firm for about 15 years, Judd Herberger said, before switching to real-estate development as the head of Herberger Enterprises.“But in his office he had an architectural drafting table that always had something on it that he was working on, be it his own homes that he designed or projects that he designed,” he said.Among his many gifts to ASU, Gary Herberger contributed to the Design School in efforts to study sustainable urban planning. He also helped fund a merger with the arts college to create the current Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.Steven J. Tepper, dean of the institute since 2014, said one of the first things he did after he was offered the job was meet with Gary and Jeanne Herberger.“They were an amazing font of knowledge and inspiration for me from day one,” he said. “That visit with them still remains one of the highlights for me, because being in a space that was 360-degree designed by the person who lives in that space. Every detail in that home in Paradise Valley had Gary’s design thumbprint on it.”As news of Herberger’s death spread last week, civic leaders around the Valley offered praise.Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey took to Twitter on Tuesday to praise his “immeasurable and lasting” impact on the state, and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, via Facebook, called him “a true giant for education, architecture and the arts.”Architect. Businessman. Philanthropist. #AZ is better thanks to Gary Herberger. His impact on @ArizonaState & #AZ is immeasurable & lasting pic.twitter.com/or0EVsTf1z— Doug Ducey (@dougducey) March 7, 2017In an appreciation published online by ASU, university president Michael Crow said, “Gary had an extraordinary intellect that was wide-ranging and effortlessly curious about how to design things better, how to make things better. He was totally committed to upgrading the intellectual capability of the community. His legacy here at ASU and around the Valley will be felt for generations to come.”Reach the reporter at kerry.lengel@arizonarepublic.com or 602-444-4896.Read or Share this story: http://azc.cc/2ncAt6Q...

Obit: Serving La Verne was only half of what Galen and Doris Beery accomplished - Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

Monday, November 14, 2016

Hands on History program.“Third-graders studying California history do hands-on activities on Native American traditions, the Spanish ranchero period and the Gold Rush era at San Dimas Canyon Park, Pomona’s Palomares Adobe and forested canyons above Glendora,” Neeley said. “Nanette Hall, BUSD’s assistant superintendent of educational services, would work with Galen to create a curriculum. We all agreed it’s important children know not just state history, but local history, too. He would be helping create the next generation of historians.”Retired educator Joanne Wagoner said Doris Beery had already categorized and written the display’s texts and Galen Beery had completed drawings for the gallery.Galen BeeryGalen was born Nov. 15, 1937, in La Habra, the oldest of La Verne College professor Cleo Beery and his wife Miriam’s three sons. His brothers, Harvey Beery and Quinter Beery, said he was always a role model, even as a child.“When I was younger and disturbed about anything, I’d go to Galen,” Harvey Beery, a retired mechanical engineer living in Placentia, said. “We’d do things together, he’d tell me stories and soon I’d forget what upset me. He was the go-to person for feeling OK.”AdvertisementGalen Beery’s volunteerism began in childhood, Pat Wilson of La Verne said. Starting at age 15, the two were among Brethren teenagers who spent summers volunteering on kitchen and maintenance crews at Camp La Verne, a Brethren recreational retreat in Angelus Oaks.The Brethren nonviolent, peace philosophy prompted the Brethren-raised Galen to become a conscientious objector and join the Brethren Volunteer Service as the Vietnam War loomed. He worked with the International Voluntary Services, the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. State Department to help people in Laos and Cambodia build schools and public-health facilities, dig wells and improve rural farming techniques for 10 years, starting in 1959 after graduating from Bonita High School and earning a bachelor’s degree in history from La Verne College.During a leave, he earned a master’s in municipal administration at USC.When Saigon fell in 1975, he became the Church World Service’s Indochinese resettlement program director and went to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where 80,000 refugees fled Vietnam and Laos in overcrowded boats. A December 1979 edition of La Verne Magazine reported he expanded the office from a one-man operation to a staff of six U.S. Embassy officials, 14 Americans and 53 Malaysians and helped resettle 50,000 to America and the remainder to France, Australia, Canada and other countries. He stayed in touch until his death with some expatriates in America and volunteered as an interpreter for Hmong and Laotian families in their legal and business affairs.Chuck Cable, former Hillcrest Homes chief executive officer, appreciated Galen’s volunteerism ...
