THIS NEWSPAPER INSERT IS FROM THE APRIL 18,1982 EDITION OF THE COURIER EXPRESS WHICH WAS IN PUBLICATION FROM 1826-1982
TheBuffalo Courier-Expresswas a New York. It ceased publication on September 1982.
TheCourier-Expresswas created in 1926 by a merger of theBuffalo Daily Courierand theBuffalo Morning Express.William James Conners, owner of theBuffalo Courier, brought the two papers together. The combined newspapers claimed a heritage dating to 1828. One notable part-owner and editor of theBuffalo ExpresswasSamuel Langhorne Clemens, the writer also known asMark Twain, whose tenure at the newspaper lasted from 1869 to 1871.
In August 1979, TheCourier-Expresswas purchased by theCowles Media Company, a publishing company based in Minneapolis, MN. After a change in corporate leadership, Cowles Media decided to close the paper in September, 1982. After the localNewspaper Guildmembers voted to oppose a deal to sell theCourier ExpresstoRupert Murdoch'sNews Corporation,the September 19, 1982 issue was the last issue published.This left Buffalo with only one daily newspaper, theBuffalo Evening News, now known as theBuffalo News.
Cowles Media donated the library to the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society and Buffalo State College. The library is now housed in the E.H. Butler Library at Buffalo State College. The library consists of approximately one million news clippings, one hundred thousand photographs and several pieces of artworks and framed photographs. The news clippings and photographs, arranged by subject and person, cover the late 1950s through September 19, 1982. This collection served as the library for the reporters of the paper. The librarians weeded both the clippings and photographic files, discarding older files on a routine basis. As a result many subject areas are not covered.
The library is currently being digitized. While this may take years, photographs will continually be added to the Butler Library Archives Flickr site.
