In fact, in the 1960s the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society began storing the daily news film from the three commercial TV stations, ending the practice of throwing out ‘yesterday’s news.’ Walter Dunn, who ran the Society back then, was quoted as saying ‘It’s not up to us to decide what’s important. We just need to it and let those in the future figure that out.’ A half century later, we’re finally ready to figure it out.”
