Alumni collection at Binghamton University

Identifier: BUA-0032

Scope and Contents

This collection is a compilation of materials that have been donated by alumni. More specifically, these materials reflect the history of student life and the history of the University. Student publications, memorabilia, photographs, artifacts, correspondence, posters, scrapbooks, audio and video are some of the categories of materials that can be found in this collection. These materials are particularly useful when researching student clubs and organizations, student life and activities, and student activism across the decades. The earliest materials in this collection date from the time of Triple Cities College (founded 1946) and the scope of the collection is envisioned to grow to include more recent materials as well.

Please note that this collection does not include alumni publications and does not contain the full list of student publications. Please use the Binghamton University Libraries' catalog to search for alumni publications.

For browsing purposes this collection is arranged by date of graduation or date of attendance of the alum. The first level of arrangement is by decade followed by year/s of graduation or attendance followed by alphabetical arrangement by the alum’s last name.

Specific rules followed in addition to the general arrangement: In cases where multiple degrees were awarded, the arrangement refers to the undergraduate graduation if there is one. In cases where the donor is not the original owner (for example a child of the graduate) the entry is listed under the original owner's name with a note indicating the name (and graduation dates where relevant) of the donor. Names listed in the collection reflect the name of the alum at the time of donation. Maiden or alternate names are noted in parentheses when known.
