Here's Story of
Howr Union Grew
The first committee meeting ever
held by the Michigan Union met in
December, 1903, in answer to a call
issued for representatives of all clubs
and associations, to consider ways and
means for the club which has finally
evolved into the present Union.
West hall was the scene of the first
meetings, only about a dozenrmen
being regularly present. As the club
progressed, new members were elect-
ed and the place of meeting was
changed to the Law building. The late
President James B. Angell was influ-
ential in starting the movement and
was desirous of its welffare. Other
faculty members who were interested
in the movement were Dean H. M.
Bates of the Law school, Prof. . M.
Wenley, and Prof. F. N. Scott. Its first
president was E. F. Parker, '06L, bet-
ter known on the campus as "Bob"
Parker. Other students connected with
