Centennial Celebration
Colonel George H. Maines (n6 re-
l3ation to our Kentucky Kernel),
whose great grandfather was re-
sponsible for the founding of the
University's Medical School, has a
good idea. He suggested to editors
of the various campus publications
that a centennial celebration be
organized commemorating the .first
admission of students to the Univer-
sity in the year of Our Lord 1841..
It sounds terrific to me. Here-
tofore, we've been celebrating the
years 1817 and 1837 respectively, de-
pending on whether we consider the
establishment of the University of
Michigania in Detroit to be THE
big event, or the removal of that
institution to Ann Arbor to be of
paramount importance. But, as
Colonel Maines pointed out, until
141, when the doors of the Univer-
sity were opened to students for -the
first time, this institution was more
a seat of learning where men of
letters and prominent traders and
business men could gather to dis-
cuss the pertinent issues of the day
than it was a University in the mod-
. ern sense of the word.
Mr. Maines had a fund of inter-
esting stories to tell about early
days in Ann Arbor -stories gleaned
chiefly from the diary of his great
grandfather, Dr. Isaac Newton El-
dridge, one of the first men to pro-
claim the merits of the homeopathic
school of medicine.
The name "Ann Arbor", he ex-

lAained, is a contraction of "Ann's
Arbor", which latter title was used,
to designate a spot of wilderness
recorded in a platte in Detroit in May,
1824, by John Alien. Allen and. his
wife Ann, together with Elisha Rum-
sey (after whom Allen-Rumsey
dormitory is named) and his wife
Ann were pioneers in this vicinity
and succeeded in setting up a profit-
able trade with the Indians around
here. The Indians wanted to call
the small community that grew up
"Kaw-goose-kaw-nick" after the
noise made by the saw mills of the
settlers, but the whites continued to
refer to their community as Ann's
Fortunately. Imagine singing "I
want to go back to Michigan, to
dear Kaw-goose-kaw-nick town."
Anyhow, what do you think of the
idea of a 1941 Centennial celebra-
tion. If you like it, or have any ideas
about it, please let us know.
