Southern Methodist University has renamed its advertising school the Temerlin Advertising Institute for Education and Research in honor of longtime area ad executive Liener Temerlin.

Temerlin, 73, who recently re-tired to become chairman emeritus of Irving, Texas-based TemerlinMcClain, was in-strumental in raising more than $6 million to fund the university’s expansion program.

An additional $4 million is expected to be raised toward a total endowment of $10 million.

Gerald Turner, president of the Dallas university, and Carole Brandt, dean of the Meadows School of the Arts, were present at a ceremony last Thursday to make public the name change.
