The Michigan Dai-


Being Completed by Professor Dem-
mon-To be Published Prob-
ably this Summer.
Professor Isaac N. Demmon, head
of the English department of the Uni-
versity of Michigan, is at work com-
pleting a history of the University of
Michigan which will probably be pub-
lished this year.
About five years ago, the Herndon
Co., of Boston, employed Professors
B. A. Hinsdale and I. N. Demmon
to prepare a history of the University
with biographies of the regents, pro-
fessors and benefactors, as a part
of their series entitled "Universities
and their Sons." After Herndon's
death, something over a year ago, the
company was reorganized and the
history and mother materials which
Prof. Hinsdale had prepared were
transferred to the Board of Regents.
Prof. Hinsdale's work will now be
supplemented by Prof. Demmon and
published under the auspices of the
University some time during the com-
ing year. The work contains between
three and four hundred quarto pages
with illustrations of the buildings and
grounds and portraits of the regents,
professors and benefactors. It covers
the whole ground, from the beginning
to the present time. Prof. Hinsdale's
wA known qualifications as an his-
torian is a guarantee of the value of
the work. It was the last work of im-
portance which Prof. Hinsdale wrote
ant was completed just before his
Proessor Demmon has broaigat the
work up to the present tint', and pro-
vided iiogra;hies of the regents, pro-
fessors and benefactors of the Univer-
sity, m^king this feaiture of th3 book
more accurate ard cioplete th-- Tb-r
ably any other nian in Michigan could
have done. To him also belongs the
credit- for the revisata of prolcfa after
Mr. Hinsdale's death.

An imposing list of speakers has
been prepared for June 28, University

Thomas W. Palmer of Detroit for
Michigan, Judge John E. McKeighan
of St. Louis for the St. Louis alumni,
and Walter B. Stevens, secretary of
the Exposition, will extend the wel-

The University has had 25,000 cir-
culars announcing this program print-
ed, which will be circulated among
alumni throughout the country. The
presence of Michigan students on that
day is heartily desired.
One of the reasons why Michigan
has been accorded the honor of a dis-
