The Michigan League Building

This building originally started life as the Women's League building. Shortly after completion of the Michigan Union, the Women's League undertook a campaign to raise funds for a women's building. In 1921, the Regents agreed to furnish the building if the women could come up with $500,000. Many alumnae contributed to the funding of the building.

It was designed by the same people who designed the Union and construction was completed in 1929.

This is one of the statues on one side of the building.

This is the other.

This is the side facing the Bell Tower. One of these days, I'll wander around the rest of the building.
