About the Exhibit
Creating a Campus: A Cartographic Celebration of U-M’s Bicentennial was a physical exhibit displayed in the Stephen S. Clark Library in the fall of 2017. The exhibit was created in honor of the university’s bicentennial and sought to explore the history of the University of Michigan and the evolution of its campus throughout the first two centuries. The exhibit relied heavily on the research of university planner, Frederick Mayer (1968-2003), and his book, A Setting for Excellence: The Story of the Planning and Development of the Ann Arbor Campus of the University of Michigan.
Mr. Mayer’s second book is entitled A Setting for Excellence, Part II: The Story of the Planning and Development of the Ann Arbor Campus of the University of Michigan.
Special thanks to Anne Duderstadt, Fred Mayer, and Julia Truettner for keeping the campus history alive through their invaluable books. We are grateful for the assistance provided by the Bentley Historical Library staff and several Clark Library students without whose help the exhibit would not have been possible.
