It’s Throwback Thursday!

Each Thursday, throughout the summer, the Office of College Communications will include historical facts about the college in The Dome, on Facebook and Twitter. It’s all part of our yearlong sesquicentennial celebration, which culminates in September 2020 when Canisius turns 150 years old. 

Today, we flash back to July 4, 1907, the date postmarked on the postcard above. It features a view of the Buffalo Hospital of the Sisters of Charity prior to it being purchased by Canisius College in 1947 and becoming the Delavan Division. The Delavan annex housed freshmen and sophomores enrolled in Business Administration and Social Studies courses.
