We 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.
It is with great pleasure that we announce University Archives graduate assistant Joseph Patton was awarded the A. Benjamin and Helen Ravin Scholarship!
