Prominent Visitors to Buffalo

RFK(1)Prominent Visitors to Buffalo, an exhibit currently on display in Special Collections, 420 Capen Hall, chronicles famous politicians, authors, poets, musicians and other noteworthy individuals who visited Buffalo and UB in years past, particularly during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.

Selected photographs, along with original articles published in The Spectrum and Reporter, and related ephemera from the University Archives and the Poetry Collection, recall the Buffalo visits of Robert F. Kennedy, Richard M. Nixon, The Clash, Allen Ginsberg, Arlo Guthrie, Muhammad Ali, Talking Heads, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Cesar Chavez, and many others.
