Oct. 27, 1959: From 'Over the Tavern' to City Hall

Fifty-five years ago today, Big Joe Dudzick was leaving his rooms “over the tavern” to run for councilman-at-large.

Dudzick’s gin mill, and his family’s life living above it, is the subject of a play -- "Over the Tavern" -- written by the councilman’s son, Tom Dudzick.

This short biography was a part of The News’ coverage of the race for Buffalo’s handful of at-large council seats.
