Overview

The images in this book, Historic Photos of University of Michigan Football, depict 100 years of gridiron action and the players and coaches who competed on three historic fields. The first football team at the University of Michigan was established in 1879. From winning the first-ever Tournament of Roses game, to back-to-back national championships, Michigan football created an unparalleled tradition during its first century. Selected from the extensive collection at the University of Michigan’s Bentley Historical Library, the dramatic photos in this volume include rarities from games in the early 1900s, classic showdowns between Michigan and Ohio State, and All-American athletes such as the first Michigan Wolverine to win the Heisman Trophy. In vivid black and white, the first hundred years of Michigan football unfold in these remarkable images of the players, coaches, and fans.
