About Dr. Joseph P. del Tufo

The Annual Lecture memorializes and honors Dr. Joseph P. del Tufo, an admired member of the Delaware Humanities Council. In 1979, Dr. del Tufo was named the first recipient of the Delaware Humanities Award. After his death that same year, the award was renamed in his honor to recognize academic accomplishment and commitment to providing accessible humanities programs for public enrichment.

The capstone of the Delaware Humanities year, every October we bring a notable scholar or artist to Delaware for the Joseph P. del Tufo Annual Lecture.  Past speakers include Professor N. D. B. Connolly, Professor Jane E. Calvert, Professor Mark D. Jordan, and actress Cicely Tyson.
