Hank Nuwer Collection

Background

Hank Nuwer, a 1968 graduate of Buffalo State College, is a social critic and author. Hank credits Buffalo State professors and students for contributing to his success as an author and journalist.

In 1999, he wanted to give something to the college in honor of Professor Fraser Drew, who inspired him to write, and in honor of a fellow classmate, the late Joe Nikiel. His gift to the college is a collection of signed books, signed letters from authors with whom he corresponded, photographs, and drafts of some of his manuscripts.

Books

Hank has authored more than 18 books, one of which, Broken Pledges, was made into a 1994 TV movie, "Moment of Truth: Broken Pledges." His research on binge drinking and hazing in schools and higher education has made him a sought after expert by CNN and other national television networks doing special reports on those topics.

Check out Hank Nuwer's Web site, which includes information on hazing.
