Today we tell about the word buff. The word buff has several meanings. Buff is a light yellow color ,buff is also a soft cloth used to rub surface until looks bright and shiny. Yet these meanings are old and the history is not known. The meaning of buff that we do know about is one that describes a person. A buff is someone who has a strong special interests in something. For example, someone who loves Jazz music is a Jazz buff; someone who is deeply interested in their American Civil War is a civil buff. These meanings of the word is known to be American. Its use started almost 200 years ago in Newyork city. At that time, Newyork was a growing city. There were no huge, top buildings of steel and stone. Buildings then were made of wood and brick. Many were old and fires often broke out in them. The city did not have well organized fire-departments. So when the fire alarm bell rang men near the sound of fire bell dropped what they are doing and rush out to fight the fire. Later fire companies were organized with men who were trained to fight fires, they were not paid to do this, they earn their money at other jobs, but dropped what they are doing when the fire bell rang. In cold weather, many of these young volunteer fire fighters wore coats made of skin of buffalo to keep them warm and dry. Often when the fire bell rang, other man in the city rushed to help put out the fire; they also wore coats of buffalo skin. In time, any men who rush to fight fire became known as a fire buff because of the buffalo coats they wore. Time however has a way of  bring changes, cities organized fire departments, firemen became professionals, they are paid to do their job. Yet even today, we still have fire buffs who seem to appear at every fire in an area. Sometimes they prevented firemen from doing their jobs. A leading NewYork newspaper published a story with the headline "Fire buff Bar from blames". The story is about the order from Newyork Fire Commissioner. He was angry. He told reporters that his firefighters were having trouble getting near the fire because fire buffs who wanted to help were really getting in the way. So he said, he did not want anyone but firefighters to go to a fire. Fire buffs are still around, but the word has taken on a wider meaning, it includes all who have a deep interest something or some activity and so we can thank the American Buffalo that once wonder the open plains for this meaning of the word buff.
