The Buffalo History Museum | Niederlander Nomination

The Daniel B. Niederlander Award was established in 1975, in honor of Niederlander (1895-1964), a former History Museum president, businessman, and dedicated civic leader. The award is presented to a local education, cultural or heritage organization for outstanding programming.

The following criteria should guide you in the nomination of organizations:

· Services should be directed at the entire population of the town, village, or other geographical area described in its charter.

· Particular value will be placed on service rendered to youth.

· Although occupation of a permanent headquarters need not be a prerequisite, the maintenance of extended hours of service at a permanent or temporary headquarters is a factor in service to the community.

· Extensive involvement of volunteers should be emphasized and given special consideration.

· Interpretive programs, research and reference services should be equally weighed. 

· Participation in county, area, state and national historical activity.
