Prof. Bongiorno graduated from Oberlin magna cum laude in 1923 and received his M.A. from the college in 1924. He taught for a year at the University of Missouri before returning as an instructor in English in 1925. He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1935. Prof. Bongiorno taught at Oberlin for 42 years. He served as chair of the English Department for 9 years. His fields of scholarship were Milton, Dante, and literary criticism.
