Home of seven or eight Univer-
sity presidents, and credited with
being the oldest building on cam-
pus, the president's house on South
University has had a long and dig.
It was built in 1850, on the orig-
inal 40 acres whiclh comprised the
campus and was one of five houses
costing $45,000, an extravagant
sum to many in those days. The
five buildings, were known as fac-
ulty houses, and all but one has
been torn down to make way for
expanding classroom needs.
Designed by an eastern archi-
tect, the house resembles the
style popular in that region in
the 1800's. The "Widow's Walk,"
a small fenced area on the roof
of the house, was built for the
sailor's wife who anxiously
awaited the first glimpse of her
husband's ship as he returned
Now painted white and trimmed
in green, there is always a crew
of repairmen and yardmen to keep
the house new-looking to passers-
President Harlan H. Hatcher,
eighth president of the University,
Mrs. Hatcher and their two child-
ren, Robert and Anne Linda, have
occupied the home since 1951.
President and Mrs. Hatcher
will continue the tradition es-
tablished by President-Emeri-
tus Alexander G. Ruthven of
opening the home to all students
on campus at bi-monthly teas.
Students act as hostesses and
guests receive guided tours or
may wander at their leisure
through the historical home.
Whether the individual's wish
is singing as a career or as a hobby,
the Men's and Women's Glee Clubs
can fulfill either desire.
Tryouts for the Women's Glee
Club, open to all women on cam-
pus, will be held at 4 p.m. every
Tuesday and Thursday in Audi-
torium D, Angell Hall until the
quota of members is filled.
An associated Women's League
activity, the Women's Glee Club
under the direction of Maynard
Klein has planned an eventful
year of events including the an-

certs, radio programs, extra con-

When occupied by President
Ruthven, who was a noted author-
ity in the natural sciences, the
house had a closed patio between
the living room and study, which
was kept full of plants and flow-
ers of all kinds.
Dr. James B. Angell, who held
the presidency from 1871 to
1909, was undecided for nearly
two years whether to accept the
Regents' offer of appointment.
Dr. Angell visited Ann Arbor,
and decided to accept the position,
provided improvements were made
in the house. He wanted it paint-
ed and papered, and especially
wanted a central heating system
and bathroom, such as his family
was accustomed to in the East.
When the Regents agreed, he came1
to Ann Arbor, and lived in the1
house even after his retirement.
Dr. Angell died in 1916 and the
building was used as Red Cross
headquarters for a time duringc
World War I. During his admin-t
istration a third floor and a westr
wing were added to the structure.r
