Historical Note

Historical note taken from the 2007-2008 Member Directory:

In Spring 1974, at the instigation of Professor Rose Weinstein, a survey was authorized by Dr. Robert Ketter, then President of the University, and supported by the Multidisciplinary Center for the Study of Aging. This study was to determine, among those already retired and those approaching retirement, an interest in establishing an Emeritus Center at the State University at Buffalo.

The results being favorable, Dr. Ketter appointed a steering committee to secure appropriate space and to initiate the necessary organizational structure of the Emeritus Center.

The Emeritus Center of UB was then formulated in 1977 to provide all retired University personnel with a means to continue their relationship with the University community.

Originally located in Harriman Hall, the Center was moved in January 1982 to Parker Hall. In September 1984, the Center moved to its present quarters in the South Lounge of Goodyear Hall on the South Campus.

The Emeritus Center provides a meeting place with a pleasant atmosphere for retired University personnel and their spouses. There are monthly meetings… and day trips are scheduled a few times each year. Various committees, comprised of members, promote activities that include working with other campus departments.
