The University of Michigan Story: Hail to the Victorsby William G. Scheller
Since its founding in 1817, the University of Michigan has had a history of making history—social, political, medical, scientific, technological, athletic, national, and global. The University of Michigan Story: Hail to the Victors celebrates the spirit of the UM experience, and the enthralling university traditions that make students, alumni, and their families proud to be called Wolverines. As the first American university to be nonsectarian and make education available to qualified students regardless of sex, religion, race, or country of origin, the University of Michigan has attracted such intellectuals as playwright Arthur Miller, medical pioneers William Mayo and Jonas Salk, U.S. President Gerald Ford, rock stars Madonna and Iggy Pop, astronauts James McDivitt and Edward White, sports legends George Sisler and Tom Brady, and Google co-founder Larry Page—all of which are featured in this book. The University of Michigan Story offers a photographic tour of each campus, with a combination of archival and contemporary images, and details the famous events in the school’s history. This beautiful book is sure to jog every alum’s memory with recollections of their college years and is a treasure for any student, faculty member, alumnus, or fan.
