U. of Buffalo Will Remove President Millard Fillmore’s ‘Deeply Hurtful’ Name from Building

The University of Buffalo announced this week that it is removing President Millard Fillmore’s name from an academic building. The decision was made in response to concerns about Fillmore’s support for the Compromise of 1850, which resulted in the Fugitive Slave Act. University of Buffalo President Satish K. Tripathi suggested that Fillmore’s values are not compatible with those of the university.
