Activist Blanche Van Leuven Browne
Browne suffered from polio as a child and vowed to improve the quality of life for others. In 1916, she founded the Michigan Hospital School for Crippled Children. The home cared for hundreds of children, many of whom had been given up by their families. Includes Blanche’s personal writings, records, and photos.
Annie Smith Peck came to U-M just after women were admitted, and excelled in spite of prejudice against female scholars. Then, she started climbing mountains, and further redefined what most people thought women could do. Her answers to a U-M survey in 1924 reveal her determination and focus.
