howard hymanIn Memoriam

Professor Howard Hyman
Political Science Department
Manhattanville College

Professor Howard Hyman passed away on December 31, 2010 at the age of 78. He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather, and his entire family was by his side.


His connection with Manhattanville was deep, as he taught in the Political Science department for over 25 years. Some of his former students remained close friends long after graduation. His daughter, Allison Hyman Tibaldi was a Manhattanville graduate, class of 1990, and his son, David did his Master's degree at the college.

Howard remained active and interested in Constitutional Law and American Government in his retirement years, and his love for teaching continued. He was a volunteer Politics teacher at the 92 Street Y in NYC, as well as a volunteer at Mount Sinai hospital. His favorite retirement activity was spending time with his three grandchildren, who adored both his sense of humor and deep intelligence.
