Cementing the 'M'

On every tour of campus,
tour guides decked out in
maize and blue take prospec-
tive students to the Diag to
see the block M, warning
them not to step on it for fear
of failing their first blue book
exam. But the campus land-
mark wasn't always a part of
the Diag.
it was the class of 1953 that
cemented the large brass M
into the sidewalk located in
front of Hatcher Graduate
Library. But decades before
that, a Plant Department
employee created the crest out
of brick and mortar, according
to the Alumni Association's
website. Perry Kimbel first
had the idea in 1922, when
the Hatcher Graduate Library
had just been established.
The myths surrounding the
M have been around as long as

" An article in yesterday's
edition of the Statement
(the tireless sober monitor,
Jose Nunez) implied that
Lynn "Gordie" Bailey was a
member of the University's
chapter of Chi Psi fraternity.
He was a member of the Uni-

the figure itself. Generations
ago, sophomores felt respon-
sible to protect the M from
newly admitted freshmen,
according to the alumni web-
site, and now proud Michigan
fans guard it from Michigan
State fans before the two foot-
ball teams meet each year.
The only way to reverse the
curse that comes from step-
ping on the block M is to run
naked from the library to the
Bell Tower, according to the
grad library's website.
Students and University
officials hold such reverence
for the block M that when
graduation was held in the
Diag last year, chairs were
situated strategically around
the M so as not to obscure it
in any way.
