Where in the world are UB alumni?

A new UB alumni directory scheduled for release in August/September 1997 will be the most up-to-date and complete reference ever compiled on nearly 120,000 University at Buffalo alumni. This comprehensive volume will include current names, addresses and phone numbers, academic data, plus business information, and will be bound into a classic, library-quality edition, making it easy for alumni to locate former classmates and acquaintances‹and for them to find you.

The Bernard C. Harris Publishing Company has begun to research and compile the information, but alumni cooperation is needed to ensure the success of this project. If you prefer not to be listed in the directory, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations in writing as soon as possible.

All alumni with current addresses on file will soon receive an important questionnaire in the mail. Please be sure to complete and return the directory questionnaire before the deadline indicated. It is your opportunity for an accurate listing in the new directory.

If you do not return the questionnaire, it is possible that you may be inadvertently omitted, or that your listing may contain incorrect information. At a later point in the project (and before the final composition stage of the book), alumni will be contacted by Harris directly to verify that all personal data is accurate.
