- The Link Collections at Binghamton University consist of the Edwin A. Link papers, the Marion Clayton Link papers, materials from the Link Foundation and from Hughes Training, Inc. as well as over 100 books donated by the Links, most of them from Edwin Link's personal library. The original collection of Edwin Link's papers was donated to the University by the Links in 1975, and the original Register of this collection was written in 1981, shortly before his death. Since then many more materials have been added to this collection, thanks to Marion Link and, in later years, Edwin's younger sister Marilyn Link. It was Marilyn who gathered Marion Link's papers and arranged to have them donated to Binghamton University in 1993. In 1996, Hughes Training Inc., microfilmed their historical archives, which contained materials relating to the Links' enterprises, and donated the originals to the University, along with the microfilm of papers donated to both Binghamton and the Smithsonian Institution. The most recent addition to Binghamton's collections are papers from the Link Foundation, donated in 1997. The Edwin A. Link papers were organized and described by Martha Clark, a graduate student in the Department of History in 1977-1979. The 1981 Register was written by Martha Clark and Marion Hanscom, Special Collections librarian. The Marion Clayton Link papers, the Link Foundation papers and the Hughes Training, inc., papers (known as the Link-Hughes Collection) were arranged and described in 1998 by Beth Turcy Kilmarx, Archival Assistant for Special Collections; Jeanne Eichelberger, Head of Special Collections and Preservation; Randall Miles, a graduate student in the Department of History; and Cindy Olbrys, Principal Preservation Assistant. This revision of the Register was written by Beth Turcy Kilmarx and Jeanne Eichelberger. The literary rights in the Link Collections have been dedicated to the public.
