Tom Reilly Dedication

Cal State Northridge paid tribute to late journalism chair Tom Reilly (right) on October 8, dedicating the editorial offices of the Daily Sundial student newspaper to his memory.

At top, Daily Sundial faculty advisor Manley Witten (left) and Journalism Department chair Kent Kirkton join President Jolene Koester at the naming ceremony.

Reilly spent more than 30 years as a CSUN journalism professor, including two terms as department chair. An expert on the Mexican-American War, he donated to the university research documents including a major collection on the U.S. press during the war with Mexico. Reilly established two CSUN endowments totaling more than $400,000, for the library's Urban Archives Center and the Tom Reilly Student Journalism Enterprise Fund supporting student projects.
