Rain-shortened
fundraiser hauls
in record amount
By PETER SHAHIN
DailyStaffReporter
Though there wasn't a car-
nival this weekend at Palmer
Field, it certainly looked that
way.
For 24 hours, the Universi-

ty's annual Relay for Life event
united thousands of students,
faculty and staff for the com-
mon cause of defeating can-
cer. This year's Relay funding
surpassed last year's record
of $340,000 with more than
$365,217 raised by Sunday's
10 a.m. conclusion ceremony.
This year's total is expected to
increase further because the
collection of money was dis-
rupted due to thunderstorms
at 5 a.m. yesterday.

Relay for Life strives to
fund cancer research and sup-
port services that the Ameri-
can Cancer Society oversees.
Relays are the main fundrais-
ing vehicle for the ACS, and it
is estimated that more than 4
million Americans have taken
part in Relay events since its
inception in 1986. According to
the Relay website, more than
$3 billion has been raised for
the ACS since that time.
After the event, LSA senior

Laura Flusty, co-executive
director of Relay for Life,
wrote in a statement to The
Michigan Daily that despite
the disruption in fundraising
collection, the organizers still
considered the event a success.
"Though the weather was
not ideal towards the end, we
still were able to make the most
out of the event with a large
attendance, and even larger
fundraising total," Flusty

STUDENT START-UPS
* TechArb honors work
at end-of-year event

Showcase
highlights student
entrepreneurship
By AUSTEN HUFFORD
Daily StaffReporter
In a cavernous room with
dusty floors and exposed light
fixtures on East Liberty Street,
members of Ann Arbor's start-
up community gathered on
Friday to celebrate their busi-
ness successes.
At the TechArb spring
showcase, about 150 people
came together for a variety of
startup and entrepreneurship
related affairs in honor of the

University's startup incubator.
Some came to showcase their
companies and ideas to inves-
tors, fans and peers, and grad-
uating seniors were applauded
for receiving the Program of
Entrepreneurship certificate
on their diplomas. TechArb
also announced its next round
of members for the second half
of 2012.
Engineering Dean David
Munson said the University
and Ann Arbor are becom-
ing entrepreneurial hubs that
might one day rival those of the
Silicon Valley and New York.
He referred to Ann Arbor as
"this nation's next great entre-
preneurial ecosystem and cre-
ative community."

Munson also reiterated the
need for entrepreneurial Uni-
versity graduates to stay con-
nected with the campus even
after leaving Ann Arbor. He
said alumni should keep in
touch with their classmates
and remain aware of startup
news.
Doug Neal, executive direc-
tor of the Center for Entrepre-
neurship, praised graduating
seniors who have completed
the Program in Entrepreneur-
ship - a nine-credit program
that teaches entrepreneurial
skills. Neal said the program
is available to 90 percent of
undergraduates at the Univer-
sity.

Though the college basket-

King spoke at
Hill Auditorium,
Michigan Union on
Nov. 5,1962
By HALEY GOLDBERG
Daily NewsEditor
While the University has a
long, visible history of honor-
ing late civil rights activist and

Nobel Peace Prize recipient
Martin Luther King Jr., one of
his visits to the University dur-
ing the height of the civil rights
movement has been overlooked
- until now.
David Erdody, a digital cura-
tor at the Bentley Historical
Library, discovered a series
of 20 photo negatives in early
January that feature King giv-
ing a speech and hosting a dis-
cussion at the University. These
photographs, which have never

been printed or published,
depict King speaking and greet-
ing a crowd at Hill Auditorium,
attending a small discussion in
the Michigan Union and having
dinner at the University on Nov.
5, 1962.
In explaining the discovery of
the photo negatives, Erdody said
he's known since his childhood
that King often made trips to
Detroit, but he always wondered
