The Faculty History Project documents faculty members who have been associated with the University of Michigan since 1837. Key in this effort is to celebrate the intellectual life of the University. This Faculty History Website is intended as a component of the effort to document the extraordinary academic achievements of Michigan’s faculty in building and sustaining one of the world’s great universities. It provides access to a comprehensive database of information concerning the thousands of faculty members who have served the University of Michigan.

Louise Stowell Estate

Louisa Reed-Stowell
Regents' Proceedings 83

From the estate of the late Mrs. Louise Reed Stowell, '76, there have been received a number of packing cases containing books, microscopes, microscopic slides, photographs, and crockery.

This consignment was unpacked by Dean G. Carl Huber, and Regent Beal and the undersigned inspected it at Dr. Huber's request with a view to its appropriate disposal. The microscopic apparatus and most of the books have been turned over to the custody of the Department of Anatomy.

One of the microscopes is of some historic value and the books, which are chiefly on the subject of microscopy, are being placed in the department library. A number of the photographs have been placed in the University's historic collection in the General Library.

The crockery, which included some glassware and a rather large collection of majolica, was intended for the Michigan League and has been turned over to that organization.
