Hail To The Victors

By William G. Scheller

cover image The University of Michigan Story: Hail To The Victors captures and celebrates the spirit of the U-M experience, while connecting the reader to the university's traditions that make students, alumni and their families proud to be called Wolverines. 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. It exists not only in space and time but in the geography of the heart. And now, The University of Michigan Story celebrates these remarkable achievements, events, students, faculty, and alumni who have perpetuated this unique educational institution.

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 paved the way for many scholars and researchers across the globe. It has attracted such intellectual minds as literary writer 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.

Inside the pages of The University of Michigan Story, memorable photos from the past and present jog every graduate's memory with recollections of their college years. Including over 150 spectacular photographs, The University of Michigan Story is a treasure for any student, faculty member, alumnus, or fan. With an insightful foreword by alum and journalist Mike Wallace and a captivating tour through Central Campus, Medical Campus, North Campus, Athletics, as well as the extensive look at the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan, this one-of-a-kind keepsake is a perfect gift for any one who "bleeds" blue and maize.

Written by William G. Scheller, a travel writer and author/co-author of more than twenty books, this magnificent volume captures the essence of this prestigious university.
