One hundred years ago this month
the first class was graduated from
the University at Ann Arbor and be-
came the newly organized alumni
body of eleven.
These first.graduates took the name
of the Society of the Alumni of the
Department of Literature, Science
and the Arts, and out of this group
developed the Alumni Association
with its roster of 1,750 life members
and sponsorship of local alumni clubs,
Class Officers Council and class re-
unions, the Alumni Catalog Office,
the Alumni Advisory Council and the
The President's Opinion
The p'resent-day spirit of the As-
sociation is expressed in the follow-
ing statements made President Ruth-
ven in 1932:
"Webelieve that the student should
be trained as an alumnus from matri-
culation. He enrolls in the Univer-
sity for life, and for better or worse
he will always remain an integral part
of the institution."
In contrast, ie scope of the early
group was much smaller. The So-
ciety of Alumni aimed to provide an
opportunity for former students to
gather and it was not until 1860 that
the alumni participated in University
affairs in any capacity other than
that of critic.
It then stated its purposes as "im-
provement of its members, the per-
[petuation of pleasant associations,
the promotion of the interests of the
University and through that of the
interests of higher education in gen-
It was in 1871 that the movement
began to unite the alumni of all de-
partments. The Department of Law
alumni numbered 1,024 by this time
and there were 1,200 medical alumni.
In 1897 the Society of Alumni held
its last meeting and organized all
department alumni groups into one
united body, headed by a board of
five directors (later increased) Levi

sevred as general secretary from 1901
Wilfred B. Shaw, '04, Director of
Alumni Relations, began his quarter
century as general secretary in 1904
and was succeeded in 1929 by the
present secretary, T. Hawley Tap-
ping, '16 L.
During Shaw's administration the
Association moved from a room in
University Hall to its present loca-
tion in Alumni Memorial Hall at its
opening in 1909. The number of lo-
cal alumni groups grew, and now
there are 195 such clubs. Unique
among them is the University of
Michigan "West of Tokyo" Club,
whose members are former students
now stationed west of a line drawn
straight south of Tokyo.
Groups of 275
Classes upon graduation are now
organized into 275 groups, each of
which holds a reunion every five
years in peacetime. The Class offi-
cers Council, with Robert O. Morgan,
'31 Ed., as secretary, coordinates
their activities. The Emeritus Club,
open to alumni graduated 50 years
or more ago, has been functioning
The "Michigan Alumnus," is the
oldest existing alumni publication in
the country, with the exception of
the "Yale Alumni News." Alvick
Pearson established it in 1894 and it

'Alumnus' Published Weekly
The magazine, edited by Tapping,
appears weekly during the first two
months of the fall term, every two

year, and monthly in the summer.
A necrology file is published in the
"Alumnus" and its compilation con-
stitutes one of the functions of the

Mrs. Lunette Hadley. The office po-
ssesses files of approximately 99,000

dence and circulars;the folder file

tive officers and teaching faculty
members of the University; and
