The University of Michigan, An Encyclopedic Survey
The definitive, multi-part history of the University. More than 400 entries relate the history of U-M's many schools, colleges, departments, programs, organizations, and buildings, as well as the eras of each U-M president. Research for the project began in 1937, when U-M celebrated its 100th year in Ann Arbor. The results were published in four hardbound volumes from 1942 to 1958. In the 1970s and early '80s, many new and updated entries were published. The full Survey has been digitized and put online. A revised and updated digital edition is being prepared in connection with the University's bicentennial in 2017.
