Michigan Daily Alumni Photographers

Description

The Michigan Daily Alumni Photographers Project is a collaborative effort of the University of Michigan Board of Student Publications, The Michigan Daily and Bentley Historical Library to preserve and promote the rich photographic heritage of The Michigan Daily. That heritage provides documentation of the campus, the community, and the wider world and demonstrates the technical skills and aesthetic vision the photographers brought to their assignments. The Bentley Library's Michigan Daily record group includes negatives and prints dating from 1963 to 2004 (bulk 1963-1982) and some digital images for 1995 to 2006. To supplement the Bentley's Michigan Daily collection, the Bentley and the Board of Student Publications have reached out to former Daily photographers who may have personal collections of their work for the Daily, asking if they would consider contributing a selection of their best images for inclusion in the Michigan Daily Alumni Photographers Project. To date Jay Cassidy (1967-1969), Steve Kagan (1970-1973), and Sara Stillman (1995-1998) have contributed to the project.
