The Monroe Fordham Regional History Center

About the Center


The Monroe Fordham Regional History Center, established at SUNY Buffalo State by former President Muriel Howard, continues and expands the archival collection work begun more than thirty years ago by Dr. Monroe Fordham. It serves as a resource for the campus and surrounding community, bringing together materials including newspapers, photographs, personal papers, and organizational records.

The mission of the Center is to promote understanding of regional history, encourage research, and to make historical resources accessible to students, scholars, and community groups. This mission is sustained through collaboration with community groups and other local archival resources to actively preserve and disseminate historically significant documents of persons and institutions that contributed to western New York history.
