In Memoriam:

Dr. Larry Berg


The Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at USC mourns the loss of one of its founders, Dr. Larry Berg.

Dr. Berg joined the University of Southern California’s Department of Political Science in 1969 and co-founded the USC Institute of Politics and Government (IPG) in 1978, now known as the USC Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics. Dr. Berg’s commitment to students and learning was widely admired, and his leadership laid the foundation for the political internships, conferences and panel discussions that make up the Unruh Institute today. Over the years, Dr. Berg’s foresight benefited thousands of students, many of whom have gone on to careers in politics, government, and public service.

During his time at USC, Dr. Berg was known for being an expert on California’s initiative process, as well as for publishing numerous works on corruption in the financing of judicial political campaigns in California. His tenure in politics includes a variety of influential roles – he served as a Board member of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), as a Robert F. Kennedy delegate to the 1968 Democratic National Convention, and as an advisor to Senator Edmund S. Muskie (D – ME), the author of the Federal Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.

Beginning in 2014, the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at USC will offer an annual award for a student or students who have demonstrated a strong interest in public service through their academic work, political involvement, and civic engagement. The Dr. Larry Berg Award for Political Leadership will provide students with financial support to work on behalf of an elected official or cause that inspires them. The Award will continue Dr. Berg’s legacy of engaging students in public service. For more information on the Dr. Larry Berg Award for Political Leadership, please click here.
