This issue of the Binghamton Journal of History is dedicated to Professor Warren Wagar.
For many years, Professor Wagar has been the heart and soul of the undergraduate program and, in no small measure, is responsible for the formation of this Journal. He served as director of undergraduate studies since time immemorial, anyway, for a solid decade. He has given simply enormous blocks of his time to overseeing the undergraduate program, to maintaining contacts with the students, and to caring about the nature of undergraduate studies on this campus.
And, he nearly singlehandedly created the Binghamton University chapter of the History Honor Society, Phi Alpha Theta. His leadership and driving presence in that organization have been incredible. His sure hand, wit and commitment in guiding Phi Alpha Theta truly have been inspirational.
With respect and gratitude, this issue thanks Professor Wagar for his extraordinary and unselfish service to our students and this institution.
