This collection chronicles many of the politicians, authors, musicians, and activists that visited Buffalo as well as UB. Documentation from the University Archives includes photographs, coverage of events from the UB Spectrum student newspaper, and related ephemera. Speakers include Robert F. Kennedy, Richard M. Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, Muhammad Ali, and Ralph Nader. Much of the coverage is from events from the 1960s and 1970s. Additional visitors and content are regularly added to the collection.

A portion of these images are available for purchase from the UB Libraries Store
