Back in 1912, Frank E. Robbins
got off a train in Ann Arbor and
hopped on a trolley car to Prof.
Campbell Bonner's home.
That trolley car ride destined
Robbins to a stay at the University
which has seen him watch ten sets
of graduating classes come and go.
It was a hot summer day when
Robbins made his way to Prof.
Bonner to confirm a job as an
instructor in the Greek depart-
THE UNIVERSITY had about
7,500 students and Hill Auditor-
ium had just been built. There
were no men's dormitories and
only Betsy Barbour, Helen New-
berry and Martha Cook housed
"We thought the University
was getting pretty big when we
hit an enrollment of 10,000,"
Robbins said, "and nobody then
imagined we would become as
large as we are today."
By 1921, Robbins had become an
assistant professor and was chair-
man of the classification commit-
tee during student registration.
One day while working at registra-
tion he was told that President
Marion L. Burton wanted to see
him in his office.
"He asked me if I wanted to be
his assistant, and I said yes."
That's how Robbins describes his
appointment in 1921 to the job
which he still holds, that of As-
sistant to the President.
SINCE HIS appointment, four
presidents have reigned over the
University. "President Clarence
Cook Little was the most contro-
versial," Robbins says, "but as a
whole they all have been easy to
get along with."
The authority on University
life terms the war years of 1917-
18 the most hectic in his long
stay here. "We had what was
known as the Student Army
Training Corps which corres-
ponds with ROTC today. Many
of the men were barracked in
the Union, which was "pretty
much walls and floors at the
time," he explained.
"In a large size shed, known as
the Union annex, the men set up
a mess hall. The SATC didn't do
too much and perhaps its greatest
function was to show what should-

ONE OF THE early members'
of 'The Apostles,' a club for ba-
chelor faculty members, Robbins
saw it succumb in 1943. "The wife
of President Angell helped chris-
ten the club in 1899," Robbins
said, "and I joined shortly after
arriving on campus."
"We rented a house where
some of the men roomed and
had a large board table for any
member who wanted to eat
there," he said. We moved sev-
