Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo celebrated its 120th anniversary Wednesday morning with a ceremony sealing mementos from the community into a time capsule buried on the facility's campus.   

At the event, Roswell Park IV, a descendent of the institute's founder, said his great-grandfather would be honored by the years that have been dedicated to fighting the disease. 

"One element that he would be enormously proud of if he could see what we are today, is that we are trying with a conviction and a power and a might that would impress him greatly," Park said. 

Other speakers included Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and Roswell CEO Dr. Candace Johnson.

The capsule featured a WNED-TV Channel 17 documentary on historic Buffalo-area landmarks. 

HERE's A COLLECTION OF PICTURES and VIDEO FROM THE EVENT:
