The Eddy Family Papers
The Eddy family lived in Plymouth, Michigan, and the three Eddy brothers -- Willard, William Hannahs, and Clark -- served in the Michigan 2nd and 24th Michigan Volunteer Infantry Regiments in the Civil War. This incredible collection has family portraits from the 1850s to the 1870s as well as Civil War correspondence and a family Bible.
When brothers Irving and Allen Pond built U-M's League and Union, they constructed gender rolls right alongside the walls, floors, and windows. A new UMMA exhibition curated by the Bentley's Associate Director, Nancy Bartlett, takes a closer look at how the Pond brothers' vision changed the campus.
