University Archivist, Yvonne Deligato, receives award

Baxter congratulates University Archivist, Yvonne Deligato, on her award.

University Archivist and Local History Bibliographer, Yvonne Deligato, has been awarded a Certificate of Recognition from the Division of Student Affairs. The award acknowledges her exemplary contributions to the Binghamton University community.

Her nominator wrote: “Yvonne Deligato is a truly dedicated Bearcat. She is one of the hardest working staff members on campus. As the University Archivist, she is unfailing in her commitment to preserve the university’s history, from office records from the President’s office to oral histories of Harpur College’s origins. As University Archivist, she is always being called upon for assistance from various offices on campus, particularly the Alumni and Communications units. Ms. Deligato [is] often called upon to produce the impossible such as early photos of campus and buildings or program memoranda, and she is able to do so due to her professionalism and skill as an archivist.

Ms. Deligato is also the Local History Bibliographer and routinely teaches classes or assists faculty teaching classes using the Local History archives materials. She is often seen helping students who are interested in the history of the surrounding area, and when she is not, she is busy digitizing, processing and preserving historical records.

Ms. Deligato has single-handedly preserved and saved the history of the Binghamton University and her dedication and hard work should be rewarded.”

Congratulations Yvonne!
