Old school: U-M in History

Young Wallenberg


Raoul Wallenberg is pictured on the steps of Angell Hall during his time as a U-M student.

Beginning this week and running through spring, The Record’s “Old School” feature will highlight the stories and images that are being presented on the new U-M Heritage Project website. That site, at heritage.umich.edu, celebrates the university’s history and triumphs, in preparation for the U-M bicentennial in 2017.


Before Raoul Wallenberg (above) achieved global acclaim as a World War II humanitarian, he was a U-M student learning life in a new country, an aspiring architect absorbing the beauty of America’s cities, and a young man confronting the trials of college: discovery, anxiety, accomplishment and love. He graduated in 1935 as the top student in his architecture class. — heritage.umich.edu/story/wallenberg-at-michigan
