From the Publisher:

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. As the first American university to be nonsectarian and make education available to qualified students regardless of sex, religion, race, or country of origin, UM paved the way for luminaries in every field, from literary giants like Arthur Miller to medical pioneers like William Mayo and Jonas Salk to superstars like Madonna and Iggy Pop. This beautiful book celebrates that rich history in spectacular photographs — over 150 — from past and present. With an historical introduction and a captivating campus tour, this one-of-a-kind keepsake is a perfect gift for anyone who “bleeds blue and gold.”
