About this collection

The University of Michigan-Flint began in the fall of 1956 with a junior class only.  The first freshman class was admitted in 1965.  The path to the present university began during World War II, when C. S. Mott, Michael Gorman, and other civic leaders felt that this economically booming city could never reach greatness without a four-year college.  The story of UM-Flint's founding was not smooth sailing all the way, however.  The documents and photographs presented here tell the story of the school from its conception to the start of the development of the riverfront campus in 1974.
