In an 1837 letter to family back east, Ann Arbor resident Sarah C. Miles Case wrote, “A branch of the Michigan University at Ann Arbor is to be established in Flint at some future day.”

That day turned out to be September 23, 1956, nearly 120 years after Sarah penned the first recorded mention of a University of Michigan-Flint campus. On this day, the Flint Senior College welcomed the Class of 1958, the first graduating class of what we now know as the University of Michigan-Flint.

This oral history project is our attempt to capture the memories of our first graduates, as told in their own words, nearly 60 years after the awarding of their diplomas.

UM-Flint’s Alumni Relations and the Genesee Historical Collections Center, a unit of the Frances Willson Thompson Library, collaborated on this project.

 

 

This project was made possible by a grant from the U-M Bicentennial.
