Church Collections

Archivist: Hope Dunbar

The Monroe Fordham Regional History Center, established at Buffalo State College 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.

The items below comprise the *DIGITAL COLLECTIONS* of various churches in the western New York area. The Monroe Fordham Center holds additional collections in a non-digital format. For a full list of collections please visit:
