Cademartori bequest supports Maxwell School undergraduates
Future undergraduates majoring in
history or economics at the Maxwell School will benefit from scholarship funds
provided, in his will, by alumnus Dominick
Cademartori ’52 BA (Econ).
Cademartori’s $30,000 gift is intended
to extend the legacy of his own studies as a first-generation American and first-generation
college student for whom college was nearly discontinued owing to financial
hardship. (His brother signed over an Army paycheck to allow Cademartori to pay
his tuition and continue at Syracuse University.) After Maxwell, Cademartori served in the
United States Marine during the Korean War, and then spent his professional
career as an executive/owner of a trading house in the sugar industry. He was
an active Syracuse alumnus who frequently attended class reunions and cheered
for Orange basketball.
Cademartori, a resident of Chestnut
Ridge, N.Y., passed away in August 2017 and his bequest was realized earlier
this year. The first Cademartori Scholar will be
named during this upcoming academic year.
Memorial donations may be made to
Syracuse University in memory of Dominick A. Cademartori. For information,
