The birth of the co-op movement

In 1930, the Michigan Socialist
Club was founded to find a way to
help students with their struggles to
meet their basic needs, like regular
meals and reliable housing.
Several students are credited
with coming up with the idea of a
house - a co-operative - run by its
residents with the intention of pro-
viding an affordable place to live
for students. The concept was later
introduced at colleges around the
country and grew into the co-opera-
tive movement.
The club rented a house on East
Ann Street and opened The Michi-
gan Socialist House, the firststudent-
housing co-operative in the nation,
on Aug. 20, 1932.
Its first 18 members were all male
graduate students who probably
would not have been able to return to
the University without the co-op.
The co-op was dubbed "The Two-
Dollar House" for its weekly charge,

which along with four to five hours
of housework, entitled residents
to room and board. The co-op also
offered a barber, canning and laun-
dry services.
The house was managed through
a series of meetings in which each
member had equal vote.
Soon after the Michigan Socialist
House opened, the first women's co-
op was opened inthe fallof1937down
the block from the men's house.
The University regulates co-ops.
Initially, University involvement was
restricted because of qualms over
alcohol and various incidents with
social conduct.
One of the earlier clashes between
co-op and administration was over
the University rule that unmarried
men live in houses under housemoth-
ers, older women who helped with
domestic chores andsupervised their
behavior.
The Socialist Club avoided house-

nothers and bristled under the
Jniversity's demands, but Ruth
Buchanan, a librarian on campus,
volunteered to be the house's land-
ady to skirt the policy.
As the co-op movement expand-
d, the University gradually passed
sore requirements for co-ops that
ncluded closing hours for women's
ouses and an advisory board to
ielp regulate operations. Students,
iowever, insisted on keeping con-
rol over member selection and
finances.
In 1947 the house on East Ann
treet was sold, so the recently
enamed Michigan Cooperative
louse relocated to the current
ouse on North State Street.
Today the Inter-cooperative
-ouncil consists of 18 group houses
nd one apartment house. At capac-
ty, about 580 University students
