Humble beginnings

It's hard to imagine foot-
hall Saturdays without the
presence of the Michigan
Marching Band, hut the
hand wasn't always part of
the football experience.
The hand hegan as a stu-
dent-run organization with
no outside support, accord-
ing to the Michigan March-
ing Band's wehsite.
Harry dePont, the march-
inghand's first official leader,
had to petition then-Univer-
sity President James Angell
for a rehearsal room for
about 30handmates, accord-
ing to the website. After pro-
posing a performance at the
Law School's ohservance of
George Washington's hirth-
day in Pehruary 1897, Angell
granted the hand a room in
University Hall to rehearse,
hut it was forced to relocate

after realizing the coo:
wasn't sound proof.
During the hand's fir:
year, it performed in sinai
er venues at indoor trac
meets and baseball game
hut by the fall of 1897, th
hand memhers got their bi
break, securing a perfoi
mance spot during a camps
mass meeting for the nee
foothall season, according:t
the website. A year later, ch
hand would he performin
at all football games.
After the t898 victor
against the Universityc
Chicago, the hand playe
"The Victors" for the fir:
time during a celebratio
through the streets of Ch
cago.
Though "The Victor;
was a success, some of ch
hand's other ideas weren

The Marchng Band daring the Michitan vs. Northwestern game as Nov. 15,
2008. The tand started as a student-run nrganization in 1897.
