Love Canal Images

About the Collection

This collection consists of photographs, maps, and posters related to the Love Canal environmental disaster. The Love Canal Images collection forms part of the Love Canal Collection in the University Archives of Special Collections. The University at Buffalo holds the premier collection on Love Canal, the country's most notorious and infamous hazardous waste site.

Love Canal is perhaps the best known and most documented event of that time period. The vast collection of materials in Special Collections at the University at Buffalo Libraries includes both government and non-government, corporate and private materials that all contribute to the telling of this unfortunate and chilling story. Check the University at Buffalo's Love Canal website for information about the Love Canal collections available for use by students and other researchers. Funding for the creation of this collection was received from the Western New York Libraries Resources Council through the Regional Bibliographic Data Bases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing Program.
