The UB Reporter is the official weekly publication of the University at Buffalo. The first issue of the Reporter was published January 22, 1970. The final paper issue appeared on May 14, 2009. The UB Reporter now exists exclusively online, at http://www.buffalo.edu/ubreporter/.
“Flashback” was a recurring feature in the Reporter. The staff in the University Archives were invited to contribute a periodic column on university history. The first “Flashback” was published on August 28, 2008, in Volume 40, Issue 1. Written mainly by University Archives staff, the features highlight historical events relating to UB relative to the date of publication (e.g. 20 years ago this week…). The 101st and final column was published in January 2012. John Edens served as editor and principal contributor. Judith Adams-Volpe and Kathleen Quinlivan were also major contributors. There were print and online versions of the columns, August 2008-May 2009. After May 2009, the UB Reporter was issued only online.
