Mary L. Beasley Collection, 1930-1950
Mary L. Beasley was president of a women’s organization that supported Black-owned businesses and helped train Detroit’s young African Americans for careers in business in the 1930s. The Bentley recently acquired her collection, which includes this autographed copy of longtime Detroit mayor Coleman A. Young.
This little desk calendar from 1899 is inscribed “With compliments of the season and of the university editor.” Each day has a printed factoid on it about the University of Michigan. This year, on the occasion of U-M’s Bicentennial, the days of 1899 and 2017 are an exact calendar match.
