Annual Red Jacket Awards to be given Nov. 18 @ BECHS

The Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society's Red Jacket Award is given annually in recognition of quiet, continued, unbroken devotion to civic progress. Created 53 years ago, in 1957, the award is based upon a medal presented in 1792 by President George Washington to the renowned Seneca orator and leader Red Jacket.

This year, the Board of Managers and Regents of the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society has selected Wayne D. Wisbaum, and brothers Christopher T. and Finley R. Greene, as recipients of the award. Wisbaum is an attorney and devoted public servant, as is Christopher Greene. The late Finley Greene was a fundraising professional who aided many non-profit causes and organizations over the course of his decades-long career.
