Students who are interested in trac-
ing Michigan's development from 1837
up to the present time, will do well
to talk to some of the few people who
have seen that development. Such a
one is Mr. Mills, janitor at the New
Science building. Mr. Mills was born
two miles south of Ann Arbor. He has
lived in the vicinity all his life and
has been in University service for
something over 25 years.
"When I was a child," said Mr.
Mills the other day, "I used to play
on the campus and pick the wild
strawberries which grew everywhere
upon it. Sometimes I would dig for
gophers. 'Please' signs would have
been of small use in those days, for the
campus waJ like a meadow and my
father, who helped build the first Uni-
'versity buildings, could have told you
that it was mowed for the hay which
it yielded.
"My father's team was one of the
three which brought the great me-
morial boulder to the spot where it
now rests on the Northwest corner of
the campus. It was placed there in
'62. Two teams could not budge it
from its muddy resting place out West
Liberty street, and my father's help
was called for.
Hall Dedicated by Angell
"That was nine years or so before
Main University hall was built. Mr.
Jenison, who was graduated in 1868,
was the architect, and it was con-
sidered one of the show buildings of
Western Michigan. The dedication of
the hall was the first official act of
President Angell. At the top of the
original dome of the University hall
there was a small square platform.
It is said that Architect Pond, who
designed the New Michigan Union and
was but a boy at the time when the
hall was built, climbed to the top of
the dome while it was under con-
struction and stood on his head on
the platform. He was quite generally
considered a haruin-scarum and al-
ways had his share in hairbreadth es-
"The dome of University hall, by
the way, is not so towering as it once
was. It was built the first time with
great timbers and there was no iron
work in its construction. In the 'nine-
ties one of the great stringers sprung,
giving the dome an ominous tilt. The
regents, fearing it might topple over
some stormy night, rebuilt the struc-
Courses Are More Complete
"Courses of study are more com-
plete today than they used to be. I can
remember when the Medics, , Dents,
and Laws put in but two six-month
terms in preparation for their life
work. Graduate doctors in those days
were compelled to know their anatomgy
