Records 594


1959 Buffalonian Talking Page 45 rpm record, 1959

The recording crackles to life, then bursts into fanfare. The announcer, in full radio voice, narrates the “talking page,” a 45-rpm disc included with the 1959 Buffalonian yearbook. Together, they provided “a verbal, as well as a pictorial résumé of the year’s activities.”

We hear of exciting news from all corners of the university. The football team had its best year ever. Count Basie performed at the Alpha Phi Delta Winter Dance. A
scientist from the Bell Aircraft Corporation presented a lecture on rockets and the space age.

Finally, the charming 11-minute record draws to a close with an instrumental version of UB’s alma mater, signaling the end of an era for the Class of ’59, but also the beginning of a new adventure. Chancellor Clifford C. Furnas lent his voice to the 45, offering this message to graduating students: “With the loss of hair or the graying of hair or perhaps getting just a little bit paunchy, may you always be prouder year by year of your alma mater, the University of Buffalo.”

Similar to an old-time radio show, the narrator of the “talking page” is accompanied by a gamut of sound effects, including a ringing alarm clock and a yawn; Hayes Hall clock’s Westminster chimes; footsteps falling on campus pavement; and the ka-chunking rhythm of an IBM machine shooting out mid-semester grades.

Altbach (Philip G.) Student Movement Collection, 1935-1971

Printed materials, including leaflets, position papers, newsletters, reports and other items concerning student movements in India, circa 1935 to 1965, international student organizations, circa 1948 to 1971, and student movements in the United States, circa 1960 to 1969.

The third section of Altbach's papers concerns student activism in the United States, circa 1960 to 1969, particularly the rise of New Left organizations such as Students
for a Democratic Society. Some of the material concerns the events surrounding the Democratic National Con­vention held in Chicago in 1968, and subsequent activities at the University of Chicago, 1968 to 1969.

Though most of the items in this collections are printed or duplicated, the transitory nature of the many organizations documented makes it likely that many of these printed items are unique, or nearly so. The collection also includes some manuscript and typescript materials. The Indian materials were collected by Altbach in the 1960's for his dissertation, Students, Politics and Higher Education in a Developing Area: The Case of Bombay, India, (University of Chicago, 1965). Most ·of the earlier materials date from ca. 1946 to 1951 and concern th_e Bombay Provincial Student Congress, which was affiliated with the All India Student Congress, and the Bombay Student Union, which was affil­iated with the All India Student Federation. Also included are materials from the National Union of Students, ca. 1947 to 1964. Much of this material concerns the relationship of the various student groups with larger political bodies within India. Of particular interest is a typescript copy of a letter written by Gandhi in 1941 concerning the role of students in the struggle against British rule of India and copies of correspondence between Jawahalal Nehru. and Ramkrishna Bajaj concerning Bajaj's opposition to the Congress Party candidacy of V.K. Krishna Mennon in 1961.

Materials on the international student movement, circa 1948 to 1971, include internal and external documentation of the National Union of Students and the International Student Conference. Much of these papers concern the political conflicts between and within the "eastern" and "western" aligned organizations and the relationship of United States student groups to organizations felt to be dominated by the­ Soviet Union.

Annual Reports of Deans and Directors [microfilm], 1931-1982

This collection contains microfilmed annual reports from 1931 to 1982 of schools, departments, offices, institutes and centers of the University at Buffalo. In the 1980s, a portion of annual reports were microfilmed as the original reports were fragile typescripts or degrading mimeographs.

Reports in this collection cover pivotal moments in the development of the University. Particularly noteworthy are reports of the World War II era,
(which include war training programs, job placement for women, and veterans services); Chancellor Samuel Capen’s tutorial instruction plan; and the establishment of the Colleges in the late 1960s through the 1970s.

As a format, annual reports give a broad overview of the University at a given point in time, including of academic units, budgets, bequests and fundraising, campus planning, and facilities; and statistics such as enrollment, degrees conferred, and faculty research publication. These reports are a critical research resource as they offer not only “what was,” but “what might have been” (i.e. insight into the assumed and planned trajectories of departments, campuses, budgets, academics, etc.) as well as “firsts.” Goals of programs and departments at their inception are noted. Reports of Schools and Faculties, particularly after 1950, often incorporate reports of departments.

Researchers should also consult individual collections for departments, schools, offices, etc. for additional reports either falling outside this date range or not microfilmed.

Furnas (Clifford C.) Campus Site Study Task Group records, 1963-1964

On July 3, 1963, President Furnas wrote a memo expressing his personal thoughts and opinions about the size and growth potential of the (then present) Main Street campus.

Beane brought the problem and possible solutions before the faculty and administration.

On October 7, 1963, Claude Puffer wrote a report entitled,
“Should We Consider a New Campus?” and in November presented an “Alternate Master Plan for SUNYAB.”

By this time, the campus community was becoming interested in the future of the University. Furnas called a Campus Location Discussion on December 23, 1963. At that time, information about the present campus and alternate future sites or additions were discussed. Furnas appointed the Campus-Site Study Task Groups and provided them with statistics and other information.

On January 10, 1964, Furnas presented a memo with approximate reactions and preferences of the Campus-Site Study Task Groups. Then, on January 15, he sent each Task Group a copy of his recommendations to SUNY on the Buffalo Campus site(s). By late January and early February, each committee had reacted with approvals, corrections, additions, and suggestions.

Furnas wrote a “Recapitulation of Site-Selection Arguments” on February 3, 1964.

The collection includes 3 copies (in most cases) of reports and memos exchanged during the period July 3, 1963 to February 3, 1964.

Huff (William S.) Collection on the Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm, 1953-2012

The Hochschule fur Gestaltung (HfG) material covers the range of the HfG's fourteen academic years and later accomplishment of many of the school faculty and a number of its students. When the HfG abruptly closed in 1968, a number of persons had the presence of mind to box documents and artifacts and to deposit them in a storehouse of the Ulmer Museum, which is part of the Cultural mandate of the City of Ulm, one of three governmental funders of the HfG. Eventually, the City of Ulm established the HfG-Archiv as part of the City Archive. This, of course, is the prime depository of the archaeology of the HfG and is expected to remain so. Because of the nature of the base of the HfG-Archiv collection, there is the possibility that the Huff papers include items that the HfG-Archiv does not have. For one, the HfG-Archiv does not have original pedagogic notes and aquarelle charts on the theory of color that were written expressly for Huff by Bauhausler and HfGer teacher, Helene Nonne-Schmidt.

The collection contains "Guidelines for the Review Process for the Chancellor and Presidents," Ketter's appraisal, and the "Final Report of the Ad Hoc Committee for Presidential Performance Review at SUNY/AB."

Ketter's appraisal is notable for his contextual narrative of the University at Buffalo in the years immediately prior to his term, through 1974. Included are his assessment of the University's relationship with the greater Western New York community; university administrative and governance structures; enrollment; campus and academic planning; and funding.

Office of the President monthly reports, 1964-1975

These monthly reports give a broad overview of the University at Buffalo from 1964 to 1975 (reports were not created for the summer months of July and August). Heavy on statistics, included are enrollment numbers, at large and for academic units, and with comparisons to previous years. Data on campus buildings and planning, academic accreditations, evidence of faculty research and publication, awards, and policies, and university events are also included.

These reports cover pivotal years in the history of the University, namely the first decade as a state institution, expansion to the North (Amherst) campus, and student unrest. For example, the May 1964 report includes a description of President Furnas’ decision to allow Selective Service exams to be administered on campus. That decision prompted the first campus student sit-in on May 2. The report describes the decision, the concerns of the protesters, and the creation of a University Task Force Committee, made up of students and faculty.

Of particular note: Some files include the final reports, as well as the “raw data” and/or background material used to create the report. This background material offers highly detailed descriptions of faculty, departments, facilities, and events on campus, and may not have been written into the final monthly report. Researchers would be well-served to study this documentation.

Powell (Elwin H.) Papers, 1960-2001

In 1996, Powell deliberately organized one box of his own materials to be donated to the University Archives. He included class hand-outs and copies of an autobiographical work in progress. He also included a table of contents and a cover letter to explain the documents (the original letter and table of contents sent to the University Archivist is located in the accession folder). The folders from Powell's original donation were incorporated into the larger collection; however they are differentiated by an asterisk (*) in the finding aid. He arranged them into five parts and describes them in his cover letter as follows:

Part I. Choosing Peace/Making Trouble: A Project in Participatory Sociology, 1960-1990 is a still uncompleted manuscript (about 200 pages) dealing mainly with my antiwar activity on this campus. Most of this material was previously printed in the Buffalo Alternative Press and in Catalyst.

Part II. Catalyst, 1985, an issue mainly of the autobiographical writings of UB students in a Soc. 101 class. 211 pages.

Part III. Lecturing by Letter: Teaching 410 people to write a book and alter their consciousness, with a 30 page correspondence with a suicide attempter. 200 pages.

Part IV. Self as Project: On Choice, Consciousness and Conduct... Class Handouts, 1987-1996... approximately 1000 to 2000 pages. Includes here is a table of contents, circa 40 pages. This collection I am now rewriting as a book. I think the handouts give a glimpse of UB life over the past decade.

Part V. Proactive Evolution... toward a Paleosociology includes published papers, handouts, and notes on the role of consciousness in human evolution.

After his death in 2001, an additional 62 boxes of materials were donated to the University Archives. Organization of this post-humus installment of papers was significantly less deliberate. Files were generally grouped as activism, research, coursework and correspondence.

Because Powell was an avid photocopier and owner of a photocopy machine, there were many duplicate copies of class handouts, letters, flyers, and leaflets. Most duplicates were discarded. A selection of the discarded documents was used in an exhibit/installation, Epicircle: The Ed Powell Project. Reviews and an announcement of the event are available in the accession folder.
