Veterans and Armed Forces Digital Collection Now Online

Air_Force_ROTC_and_Angel_FlightWe are pleased to announce a new digital collection, Veterans and the Armed Forces. This collection was curated by Sarah Pinard and made possible due to the efforts of Scott Hollander, Stacy Person, and graduate student Joseph Patton. The Office of Veterans Services generously provided access to recent photographs of the University at Buffalo’s annual Veterans Day Celebration.


Veterans and the Armed Force Digital Collection:

This collection features select materials from the University Archives relating to UB, student veterans, the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, and efforts undertaken by the University in response to wars and conflicts of the 20th and 21st centuries. Documentation includes photographs, manuscripts, posters and brochures chosen from various collections donated to the Archives by members of the Western New York and campus community, faculty, academic departments and the Office of the President.

Congratulations Joe Patton!

Joan Bozer papers available for research

Posted on: |

Project Archivist Danielle White with the completed Joan Bozer collection.

As of August 2014, the Joan Bozer papers are open for research. The collection contains correspondence, sketches, images, newspaper clippings, posters, reports, and other types of records which document the projects that Bozer worked on as an Erie County Legislator. She played a key role in the development and implementation of the Pan-American Exposition in 2001, and worked hard to increase access to the downtown waterfront with the Riverwalk project. She also helped save the St. Mary of Sorrows Roman Catholic Church from being demolished, and it is now the King Urban Life Center in downtown Buffalo. Bozer’s papers are of interest to researchers who specialize in women’s studies, local government, historical preservation, parks and recreation, and local history, to name a few of the topics her papers cover. For a quick look at the collection in its entirety, check out the finding aid here: Joan Bozer papers.

The Joan Bozer papers were processed, arranged, and described by Danielle White, a project archivist in the University Archives at the University at Buffalo.
