J. Herman Wharton Papers
John Herman Wharton (1889-1921) was an SU graduate, professor, and founder of the University's College of Business Administration. Despite few resources, he oversaw its swift growth into one of SU's most successful programs. His career came to a tragic end, however, when he was murdered in his office by a troubled faculty member. The Wharton Papers contain photographs and writings related to his time at Syracuse University.
This collection includes a variety of correspondence, documents, and photographs from the family of Dean George Fisk Comfort. Processing was made possible through a grant from The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.Read More

Wendy Solomon Morton '89 lost a dear friend, Sandy Phillips, in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. After she visited the SU Archives she wrote and illustrated a children's book about the visit, Flipper and Dipper and the Treasures of 6 Bird.This 40-page look at the history and traditions of SU is a wonderful way for alumni to remember their years on "The Hill", and a way to share those years with their children and grandchildren. It contains stories and images of SU traditions as told by SU Archivist Ed Galvin. Accompanying this soft cover book is Flipper and Dipper's plush, new friend Toni. Proceeds from the book, which is being distributed through the SU Bookstore, go to the Pan Am Flight 103 Archives to help preserve the legacies of those friends and loved ones who were lost.
