BLACK AND AFRICAN AMERICAN COLLECTIONS IN THE UNIVERSITY ARCHIVES

The University Archives houses the historically valuable records of the State University of New York at Buffalo and its predecessor, the University of Buffalo (1846-1962). The Archives collects, organizes and maintains the records of UB academic departments and administrative offices, along with all university and student publications. The Archives also collects the private papers of administrators, faculty members and other individuals associated with UB. Historical manuscript collections complement current or past faculty research interests or document regional organizations and events.

This guide highlights some of the collections by or about Black and African American people and organizations in Western New York.

Please see the Guide to Research Using Special Collections for help in identifying and using materials in the Archives.
