Civil Defense, 1941-1942

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 8-9
The collection consists of subject files from the Office of the President. As such, they reflect the concerns and issues facing the University of Buffalo, as well as higher education at large, during the World War II era, including selective service, effects of the draft on university finances and enrollment, military training, deferment for students and staff, and post-war education for civilians and veterans.

Most material relates to colleges and universities in the training of students for service domestically or overseas, both military and civilian, and consists of correspondence, memos, reports, and publications.

Notable are the honor roll of University of Buffalo alumni killed in World War II (folder 2.7), as well as pamphlets on particular training programs at UB during the war (folder 6.3).

A portion of selection of materials from this collection are available online in the Veterans and Armed Forces digital collection at https://digital.lib.buffalo.edu/collection/LIB-UA019/
