Patrick Lennox Tierney, "Lennox," passed away peacefully on June 12, 2015, at home in Salt Lake City after a short illness. He was born on January 28, 1914 in Weston, West Virginia and was the son of Stephen T. Tierney and Bertha Thompson Tierney. He moved with the family to Pasadena, California in 1918. In his younger years he taught art history at Pasadena City College and UCLA.
In 1971 he moved to Salt Lake City where he taught art history at the University of Utah until 1985 when he retired as Professor Emeritus.
