The Buffalo History Museum begins 'Blizzard of 2022' collecting initiative


Fri, Jan 27th 2023 10:30 am

The Buffalo History Museum has begun collecting photos, videos, objects and audio testimonials from the “Blizzard of 2022.” All media and artifacts collected from the community will be preserved in the museum’s archives at One Museum Court. This new collection will be available for research and reference, and may be used for future projects, exhibits and programs at the museum.

Photos, videos, written and audio testimonials can be submitted to https://tinyurl.com/blizzardBUF. The museum will also consider artifacts related to the blizzard to add to the collection on a case-by-case basis. All object donation inquiries should be directed to Walter Mayer, senior director of collections, at [email protected].

The museum will begin collecting from the “Blizzard of 2022” as the 46th anniversary of the “Blizzard of 1977” approaches this weekend.

“Blizzards leave an indelible mark on our collective memory, and the tragic weather event that gripped our community last month will never be forgotten,” Museum Executive Director Melissa Brown said. “By collecting the community’s stories and creating a historical record of the ‘Blizzard of 2022,’ we can ensure that future generations will better understand the gravity of this storm.”
