"Illuminations: Revisiting Buffalo's Pan-American Exposition"

"Illuminations: Revisiting Buffalo’s Pan-American Exposition," a series of collaborative, on-site and on-line exhibitions produced by the University Libraries and Special Collections illustrating the cultural and historical underpinnings of Buffalo’s 1901 Pan American Exposition, is on display in the libraries across the campuses. Each library will offer on-site and on-line exhibitions focused on its own area of expertise:

  • Lockwood Memorial Library, North Campus, will mount exhibitions of varying themes. One will focus on the experiences of Buffalo's ethnic minorities and their experiences of the Pan American Exposition; another, "Food, Drink and Eating at the Pan-American Exposition: Images, Memories and Analysis," will address the abundant and diverse food and drink served at the exposition. A third Lockwood exhibition will focus on the works of more than 650 American artists, as well as artists from Canada and Latin America, that were shown at the Pan Am. It also will exhibit aspects of the exposition's grounds and the work of those who contributed to the overall mis en scene of the Pan Am.
  • The University Archives, Special Collections and Poetry Collection in Capen Hall will present an exhibition titled, "Land, Lust and Murder: An Expose of Historic Deeds Done Circa 1901."
  • The Charles B. Sears Law Library in O'Brian Hall, North Campus, will approach the Pan Am from a legal perspective, focusing in particular on legal and legislative proceedings surrounding the arrest, trial and execution of presidential assassin Leon Czolgosz.
  • The Science and Engineering Library (SEL) in Capen Hall, North Campus, will present exhibits on the presentation of electricity, chemistry and architecture at the Pan Am, a grand industrial show that celebrated the wonders of technology and industry.
  • Bach and African drumming were among the musical entrees at the Pan Am, and the Music Library in Baird Hall, North Campus, will exhibit texts and documents related to its extensive musical programs. It also will present illustrations of the Pan Am's Temple of Music and other concert venues as well.
  • A bullet-probing set circa 1901 is just one of the items contemporaneous with the Pan Am to be shown by the Health Sciences Library in Abbott Hall, South Campus, in its exhibit, "Birth, Death and Everything in Between: Keeping People Healthy at the Pan American Exposition." It will focus on the enormous task faced by Pan Am medical director Roswell Park in protecting the exposition visitors from contagious diseases, food contamination and unhygienic facilities.
  • The exhibit to be mounted by the Oscar Silverman Undergraduate Library in Capen Hall, titled "The Uncrowned Queens," is based in research by Barbara Seals Nevergold and Peggy Brooks Bertram, and will celebrate the accomplishments of African-American women of Western New York from the past, present and future.
