The Bentley has recently received the materials of Christopher Armstrong, the first openly gay student body president of U-M's Michigan Student Assembly. This collection documents his undergraduate experience, speaking engagements, and the lawsuit against Andrew Shirvell.
When U-M alumna Nicole Persley had her DNA tested, she discovered she was African American. With help from Bentley archivist Brian Williams, Persley found her paternal grandfather, Dr. Alonzo Persley -- a black graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School in 1915.
