Frederick P. Haehnlen, 72, of Hawaii Kai, a University of Hawaii emeritus professor of educational psychology, died Saturday.
Haehnlen joined the University of Hawaii in 1957 and became provost of Kapiolani Community College in 1972, serving in that post until 1975. He had been appointed by Gov. John A. Burns to the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education in 1966.
Haehnlen also served as UH athletic director in the early 1960s.
Born in Gettysburg, Pa., he came from a sports-minded family of teachers. He played both football and basketball in high school. Also, he ran in track events.
After Navy service, he graduated from Gettysburg College in 1949 and was on track and football teams there. He later entered law school at Washington & Lee University but was recalled after one year to active Navy service during the Korean War. He was assigned to Japan.
He eventually returned to Gettysburg College and became qualified to teach. He later taught at Hanover, Pa., where he also coached football and track from 1953 to late 1955.
In 1956, he taught a half-year at Carlisle, Pa., and also coached golf. That summer, he returned to Japan as a civilian educational instructor and adviser for the U.S. Air Force.
He remained in Japan until September 1957 when he joined the University of Hawaii faculty as supervisor of practice teaching at University High School.
