Overview

The Squire Hall Demonstrations Records document student protests when the University at Buffalo converted the student union into a dental clinic for the Dental School, March 1982.

Historical Note

The controversy surrounding the closing of Squire Hall came to a boiling point in 1982 after five years of tension between the student body and the administration. The controversy first began in 1977 when Norton Union on UB's South Campus was renamed the "Daniel H. Squire Hall," after a former dean of the Dental School, in anticipation that the building would be converted one day into a dental clinic to provide much needed space for the Dental School.
