Historical and Class Files 1865-1974 [series]

The Historical and Class Files [Pre-1985 Accessions] (1865-1974, 0.75 linear feet) consist largely of assorted manuscripts and newspaper articles relating primarily to Law School classes graduating between 1866 and 1914. These files, which are not comprehensive, include material on class reunions and fragmentary information on former students. Of note is a student autograph book in the "Class of 1879" folder. Historical material includes miscellaneous correspondence, 1865-1974, which contains a student letter from 1865 and several examples of student withdrawal letters from the 1880s. For further information on various classes researchers should search the University of Michigan on-line catalog (MIRLYN) under University of Michigan--Law School--Class of [specific class] for printed reports, directories, and class notes for individual classes.
