Kormendy Lecture Series
In 1980 a lectureship in the College of Law was established through an endowment gift from Helen E. Kormendy, widow of the late Dr. Steven W. Kormendy. The Dr. Steven W. Kormendy and Helen E. Kormendy Law Lecture Fund is used each year to bring prominent individuals to campus to address matters of law in a public forum in the College of Law.
Dr. Kormendy, who died on January 6, 1985, graduated from the ONU College of Law in 1928 and was posthumously awarded the honorary LL.D. degree in 1985. The Ohio State Bar Association honored him for fifty years of law practice, and he was long active in events in the Hungarian community in Cleveland.
At ONU he was a member of the Henry Solomon Lehr Society, the Leadership Gifts Committee, and the N Men. He was a President's Fellow for ten years. Mrs. Kormendy passed away in 1998.
