The Pan-American Exposition was held in Buffalo, New York from May 1 to November 2, 1901. Buffalo was chosen as the location because of its size and also because of its well suited railway connections. A major feature was electric lighting which utilized hydroelectric power generated in nearby Niagara Falls. Many of the Exposition buildings, including the prominent Electric Tower, were covered in light-bulbs creating a beautiful and unprecedented sight.
Arranged according to original inventory sheet.
Materials sent to University Archives in 2017 by Martin Kelly of the Biology and Mathematics department at D’Youville College.
