1929 Seal with "The" Added to University of Michigan
The 1929 Lamp of Wisdom Seal with "The"
added in 1958.
In 1958 the word "The" was added to the 1929 seal.
We are still left with several mysteries however:
- Was the 1817 seal ever created and used?
- What was the seal adopted by the Trustees of the University on April 30, 1825? Are there any images of it?
- Was the design of the Minerva seal based on the Webster "blue back speller."
We invite any of you to attempt to solve these mysteries. The staff of the Bentley Historical Library would be happy to help you research the mysteries of the university seals or any other topic on which the library holds documentation.
