This book takes us through the various stages of the University's development from the 1860s through the last picture of former President Gerald R. Ford at the beginning of construction of his Presidential Library in 1979. A few of the pictures are also in the Historic Photos of Ann Arbor collection, but only a few. Some of these pictures are familiar to those who follow the history of Ann Arbor and the University, but I think some are rarely seen. Nice collection, helpful captions, good book.

  • My parents are U of M grads and were in school in the 70's. I gave this to gen as a Christmas gift - they have really enjoyed looking through all of the photos of campus over the years! The book was in good condition - some small tears in the cover, but it's fine for us!

  • I purchased this as a gift for my father, a U of M grad from the '50's. He was thrilled, and poured over the book for hours! His mother graduated from U of M in 1925!

  • My father in law LOVED this gift. Definitely recommend.

  • I bought this as a Christmas gift for my Father. He absolutely loved it. The photos took him back to his time on Campus, and those memories brought him much joy. The book's physical quality is top notch. Its contents are even better.

  • A great collection of University of Michigan photos and a little on the history. I attended U of M in the late 70's and many of the places depicted in the book were already looking different (or so changed that I actually had to go back and find them) and with all the construction over the past 2-3 decades many places are becoming even more unrecognizable. I would have liked some more current shots (90's - I realize this is "historic") in a side by side format, but the book doesn't suffer too much for lacking in my own prediliction for simplification. It is still a beautiful place especially around the Law School and the Quad and a wonderful place to learn. Okay, so I'm a reminiscing Baby Boomer, that would love to convince my wife to retire to Ann Arbor (especially in the Fall) so I could hang out, looking very professorial, in my old haunts - the used book stores (sorry Kindle), the $1 theaters and in Spring laying on the grass reading. For now, you can peruse this book and get a flavor for Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan and the amazing place that it was and continues to become.

  • While I attended Michigan State University right out of high school, I finished my undergraduate work in music at the University of Michigan School of Music (now the School of Music, Theater, and Dance) and later in life, I received my MBA from the U of M Business School (now the Ross School of Business). My wife and I also had our children here in Ann Arbor and raised all of them here. The University plays a big role in the life of Ann Arbor and it has certainly been a significant part of my life.

    This book takes us through the various stages of the University's development from the 1860s through the last picture of former President Gerald R. Ford at the beginning of construction of his Presidential Library in 1979. I was in my first year at the music school when the ground breaking took place just down the road a mile or two. And I graduated the same month it was dedicated in April of 1981.

    I really like the way this collection shows women participating at the University, albeit in largely segregated ways. And while there weren't many African-Americans at the University, there was a presence and some are represented here. The pictures are centered around medicine, law, the sciences, and athletics. My field, music, is only shown in passing and our school is not even pictured. A disappointment! It is a beautiful building with a lovely pond and would have made a nice addition to the book.

    We also see some of the rituals of student life and how the football teams evolved over the decades (just a few representative shots). I love the picture of the big hole being prepared for Michigan Stadium and the shot when the top was at ground level.

    A few of the pictures are also in the Historic Photos of Ann Arbor collection, but only a few. Some of these pictures are familiar to those who follow the history of Ann Arbor and the University, but I think some are rarely seen.

    Nice collection, helpful captions, good book.
