Now 200 years into its remarkable history, the University of Michigan remains at the vanguard of what it means to be a great modern public university. The University's Bicentennial in 2017 is an ideal opportunity to reflect on the path that Michigan has taken to get here. The engaging, well-illustrated stories in this book celebrate the progressive vision, dedicated individuals, and groundbreaking moments that helped forge the life-changing institution that the University is today. Snapshots of the University's early years and the founding minds behind them are included alongside engaging narratives about pivotal events like John F. Kennedy's Peace Corps speech at the Michigan Union and memorable personalities such as "Doc" Losh, Michigan's first female Professor of Astronomy and official Homecoming Queen for Life. Titled after the official Bicentennial motto, Always Leading, Forever Valiant is the perfect entry point to the University's 200-year history. The book will appeal to those interested in public institutions and history, along with alumni, students, faculty, and anyone who loves the University of Michigan.
