View Archives


The Albany Law School community is deeply saddened by the loss of Harry D’Agostino, class of ’55, who passed away peacefully on March 15, 2013, after a long illness.

A Board of Trustee Emeritus, who joined the Board in 1995, he received the Trustees Gold Medal in 2000, the highest accolade bestowed by Albany Law School. He took on leadership positions during his reunion years, and the main entrance of the reception area in the 1928 Building is named after him. As a student, he was the associate editor of the Albany Law Review. 

He worked his way through school at Siena College and Albany Law School, before joining a law firm, where he rapidly became partner, then senior partner of the firm currently known as D'Agostino, Hoblock, Flannery and Jeram. He was elected town justice for the Town of Colonie and served for 13 years. He stepped down from this position to become chairman of the Republican Party in the Town of Colonie and led that organization for 36 years.
