Passing of Professor Emeritus Bonnie Oldham

From Charles E. Kratz, Dean of the Library:

It is with the greatest sadness that I share with you that Professor Emeritus Bonnie Oldham passed away this past Friday. Bonnie just retired in late May. She will greatly missed by all of us here at the University of Scranton and beyond our campus. Please keep Bonnie’s husband, children and family in your thoughts and prayers.

The obituary for Bonnie is in today’s Times Leader (Wilkes-Barre) and Times-Tribune (Scranton).

Bonnie expressed her wishes that, in lieu of flowers, you please consider a gift to the “Bonnie W. Oldham Weinberg Memorial Library Research Endowment Fund,” in care of: The University of Scranton, Office of University Advancement, 800 Linden St., Scranton, PA 18510.

The Bonnie W. Oldham Library Research Prize, which Bonnie helped develop, was inaugurated by the Weinberg Memorial Library in 2011, and is designed to recognize student excellence in research projects that show evidence of significant knowledge of the methods of research and the information gathering process, and the use of library resources, tools, and services.
