Physical Description: 1 box

Series Scope and Content Summary

This collection is made up of two distinct materials, awards and flags. The awards recognized contributions as an educator and were presented to him by the students and faculty of San José State College.
The collection includes two flags commemorating the United States Bicentennial and the City of San José Bicentennial. Dr. Pisano served on the city committees for the celebration of both these events. Dr. Pisano's involvement with the San José Bicentennial commission led to his co-founding of the nonprofit Italian American Heritage Foundation. Included in this collection is a flag that celebrates the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' 1492 expedition from Genoa, Italy. Altogether, these flags reflect Dr. Pisano's pride in his work and his heritage.
