Detroit Will Commemorate
Historical, Automotive Events,
Anniversary of British Evacuation, Raising
Of First American Flag To Be Celebrated

By The Associated Press
DETROIT, April 27-Along with
the automotive industry's golden jubi-
lee celebration, Detroit will observe
another anniversary in its 245-year
his ory-the evacuation of Detroit by
the British and the raising of the first
American flag in this area.
The 150th anniversary of this is
on July 11, but it was decided to merge
the observance with the Automotive
Festival which opens May 29 and con-
tinues for two weeks.
The Evacuation Day ceremonies
will get under way Memorial Day
when a women's committee will
place flowers on the grave of Col.

The actual surrender took place in
downtown Detroit, the British Fort
occupying the present Federal Build-
ing site, but sponsors of the Holly-
Wood-trimmed reenactment are
thinking of the modern spectators'
comfort. The performance will be held
in Olympia Stadium, Detroit's largest
indoor arena.
The United States, history shows,
acquired Detroit the hard way--
by fighting.

Because Great Britain not only held
the area but also kept the Indians
stirred up, Congress decided to take
action. Successive expeditions against
them were led by Col. Josiah Harmer
and Gen. Arthur St. Clair. Both end-

President Washington then
played his ace card. He ordered
Gen. Anthony (Mad Anthony)

American Army, to end the upris-

the British.
With a force of 3,000 men, includ-

This led to the Treaty of Green-
ville with the Indians and opened
the way to new negotiations with
Great Britain.
Many of Detroit's citizens of 1796
didn't like the change in ownership.
There was a mass exodus of British
merchants to Windsor, Sandwich and
other nearby poinxts in Canada. Be-
fore the surrender, Detroit's popula-
tion was 2,200 but within a few
months it had dwindled to about 500.

to the University to become professor1
of transoprtation and railroad engin-
eering. Prof. Worley had planned and
built railroads, had been for many
years a consulting engineer in New
York City, and knew the backgrounds
and literature of his profession. Find-
ing that nowhere in the country was
there anything like a complete collec-
tion of literature of transportation,
he determined that the University
of Michigan should have such a
Donations Received
Prof. Worley was advised on thel
project by Dr. W. W. Bishop, librar-
ian of the University, who agreed
to the proposal that the new library
should be made an independent unit.
Generous financial assistance was
given by several automobile manu-
facturing companies, and large dona-'
tions were received from interested
individuals. With these funds a num-
ber of highly important private col-
lections were secured which formed
the early nucleus of the Library.
The shelves of the Library are.
loaded with documents, reference
manuals, technical journals, society
proceedings, government commission
reports, laws and charters, annual
company reports, and general refer-
ence books. The different fields cov-
ered by these references include wat-
erways, land transportation, air
transportation, communication, pipe-
line transportation and public
Correspondence Collection
The Library also has on file an
enormous volume of correspondence
and personal papers. Included in this
collection are the personal effects of
Colonel Charles Ellet, Union officer
in the Civil War, which were obtained
through the cooperation of his des-

cendants. Colonel Ellet's most notable
achievement in the war was the use
of a task force of rams to destroy
Confederate shipping. Colonel Ellet,
owner of a fleet of boats, was the
author of numerous reports on bridge
construction and waterways which
are preserved in the Library.
One of the most valuable of the
cets of ersonal papers is that of
Oliver Evans. early American engi-
neer. In 1805 Philadelphia crowds
watched Oliver Evans rattle down
Market Street in an amphibious jeep
straight into Delaware River- in
what was actually thie first steam-
driven motor vehicle in history.
Exhibit Cases
Along the walls of the Library and
in the hall outside stand exhibit cases
containing models and relics of the
past history of transportation. The
walls themselves are liter ally covered
with pictures, prints, photographs, old
advertising and maps.
Prof. Roger L. Morrison, present
director of the Library, emphasizes
that from the outset the Transporta-
tion Library ha. had a double pur-
pose: it is intended to be a treasure-
house in vhich can be accumulated
the literature of the subject, and it
is intended to be as complete a ref-
erence and research library as can be
gathered, serving the active fields
of the profession as well as the grad-
uate and undergraduate student
bodies of the University.
