About the Collection:

This collection provides access to two student newspapers published at the University at Buffalo between 1921 and 1950. The Bee (1921-1950) focused almost entirely on student activities, often with humor. There was almost no coverage of events beyond the UB campus or on how those events impacted the lives of UB students. With veterans attending the university after the end of World War II, UB enrolled an older and more diverse student body. It was then that the Bee’s sometimes frivolous style came under attack. The Argus (1947-1950) was established as an alternative to the Bee by a group of more “liberal, progressive” students... Editorial warfare intensified by 1950 to such an extent that funding was withheld from both papers. In the same year a new newspaper, the Spectrum, began publication.

There are numerous missing issues. The digital collection was produced from microfilm of all available issues.
