    KNOX.

    Grace Knox (1862-1936) generously provided the university with the means to establish the College of Arts and Sciences after the death of her husband, Seymour Knox. The Knox family continues to serve both the university and the Greater Buffalo area as civic, cultural, and philanthropic leaders.
