Collection
American Red Cross. Greater Buffalo Chapter

These records contain most minutes, 1915-1971, of the Board of Directors and its Executive Board, including those from preceding organizations. Administrative materials and bequests files reflect various periods of the Greater Buffalo Chapter’s history. Between 1976 and 1979, the Greater Buffalo Chapter held a huge fund raising campaign to build a new Blood Center building, for which most of files were kept. The Red Cross is a supporter and beneficiary of the United Way, so there are files reflecting the relationship between these two organizations over the years. The rest of the materials were found in the defunct Public Relations office. The Public Relations department while in existence (mid 1970s - early 1990s) wrote press releases for the other departments within the Chapter, and therefore kept files, scrapbooks, clippings, and photographs on the staff, volunteers, events, fund raisers, disasters, training classes, service provided to military families, and other community involvement. Over the years, several people have tried to summarize the history of the Greater Buffalo Chapter of the Red Cross. These historical summaries are also held in this collection. Early Chapter by-laws had a section that listed the type of records that the Chapter should keep: board minutes, official correspondence, national directives, and emergency case files (which had a special confidentiality clause attached). however, this section of the by-laws disappeared during the early 1990s. Therefore, during a mass house cleaning effort, the official correspondence and the national directives were apparently discarded. Also, the American National Red Cross now requires the Chapter to shred all non-current emergency case files. Each series has its own box numbering scheme to allow for the addition of later accessions to this collection without the constant need to renumber.
