FACULTY MEMOIR PROJECT

“It is often said that the State University, as an institution, is cold-blooded and ungrateful, using the lives and energies of its servants; then, after these have been drained of their usefulness in its service, tossing them aside with indifference, neglected or forgotten. If this be true, the fault is our own; it rests upon us, the servants of the institution. Rather be ours the sacred duty to keep alive the memory of those who gave their all to its service, and at their departure to render them fitting honor.”


This quote was taken from a tribute to Professor Charles Beylard de Nancrede, written by three faculty colleagues, Alfred Scott Warthin, Reuben Peterson and Alfred H. Lloyd. (The Michigan Alumnus, June 1, 1921, pages 567-573)


The University of Michigan Faculty History and Memoir Projects are an attempt to correct this neglect and honor the memories of those who came before us and built this great institution.


The Faculty History Project gathers information about faculty members who have taught at the University of Michigan from 1837 to the present.  It includes photographs, biographies, memoirs, and other information on each faculty member, documenting their contributions.


The Faculty Memoir Project allows emeritus faculty members as well as faculty members who have been at the University for 20 or more years to contribute their memoirs and reflections on the intellectual life of the University, along with other materials such as biographies, photographs, curricula vitae, and publication lists.
