"Imagining Buffalo Niagara in the 21st Century"

Tuesday, March 22, 2010
This June 22, 2010 lecture is part of the "Imagine Buffalo
Niagara in the 21st Century," Downtown Buffalo Public Library Noon-hour
Lecture/Discussion Series sponsored by the Center for the Study of Art,
Architecture, History and Nature (C-SAAHN). The lecture was preceded by
a presentation recognizing Stanford Lipsey, Publisher of The Buffalo
News since 1983, for his efforts in fostering cultural heritage in the
Buffalo Niagara region.
Margaret Sullivan, the first woman and only the sixth Editor-in-chief
of The Buffalo News since 1880, noted the challenges that face the
newspaper industry in general and The News in particular and saw them
running parallel to the changes effecting the industrial Great Lakes
cities and region - especially Buffalo Niagara. After describing the
challenges and reasons for optimism, much of the presentation was a
discussion with an appreciative audience that asked numerous questions.
(Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, only the beginning part
of the presentation was recorded). For a complete list of C-SAAHN
audio recordings, click here.
