Joseph B. Bugliari, Agricultural and Business Law, joined the Cornell Faculty in 1961. He served as Secretary of the Faculty (1979-82), Director of Legal Services (1977-79), and as the first Judicial Administrator (1969-71).
In his role as Dean of the University Faculty, he started the practice of speaking regularly to the Board of Trustees. He was universally lauded as an able diplomat and for his vigorous pursuit of faculty interests, and in promoting constructive dialogue between the Administration and the Faculty.
Professor Bugliari was named Emeritus in 1992, and on the occasion of his retirement, he received a number of well-deserved tributes from Faculty and University administrators for his substantial and important service to the University. He passed away on October 20, 2002.
