Note! The Bentley Library will be open for special extended hours on November 8th (this Friday, before the Nebraska game) from 5pm to 8 pm EST.
At 5:00 pm Bentley archivists Greg Kinney and Brian Williams will give a special presentation on “Michigan Football Firsts,” using rare original documents, photographs, and publications from the University of Michigan archives to highlight some of the notable firsts across 134 years of Michigan football — the first team and first game, first coach, first airplane trip and much more.
The hour-long presentation will be followed by extended viewing hours for the exhibit, “Harmon of Michigan” profiling the career of Michigan great Tom Harmon, along with showings of “One Saturday Afternoon,” a 1965 television feature celebrating the 25th anniversary of Harmon’s Heisman trophy winning season. The 30 minute long “One Saturday Afternoon” features Harmon game footage and interviews with Harmon, Fritz Crisler and Forest Evashevski.
The U-M Bentley Historical Library is located at 1150 Beal Avenue in Ann Arbor.
