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.
Access to the collection is provided at the container level. The folders are arranged by subject.
