In 1937 to celebrate the centennial of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, the Committee on University Archives suggested that an “Encyclopedic” of the University should be compiled to document the history of the institution.  Wilfred Shaw was chosen Editor-in-chief.  Over two hundred faculty and staff wrote the history and activities of the various divisions of the University, according to a carefully considered format.  The resulting four volumes contain the most complete account of the University and its history.
