Lee Swaydis, 2014 Prize Winner

The University at Buffalo Libraries, in cooperation with the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities, are pleased to announce the winner of the 2014 Undergraduate Prize for Library-Supported Research. The $500 prize recognizes students who produce significant academic inquiry requiring the use of information resources, the Libraries, and the collections.

This year’s winner is Lee Swaydis (junior, African American Studies) for his research project, “The McCarley Gardens Struggle: A Story of Gentrification,” which explores an under-researched area of local African American history and social policy. Major research databases and the Libraries large collection of rare books on local history and politics supported Mr. Swaydis’ research. The faculty mentor for this project was Dr. Keith Griffler of the Department of Transnational Studies.

The Libraries are proud of our support in this impressive research project. Swaydis will be honored at a library reception in Special Collections on April 16, 2014, in addition to the Celebration of Academic Excellence on April 23, 2014 in the Center for the Arts.

Congratulations, Lee!
