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.

Samuel Chamberlain
The Michigan Alumnus 150

Mr. Chamberlain was trained as an architect, 
 having studied at the Massachusetts Institute of
 Technology, and has had professional experience in 
architects' offices. He has spent five years abroad, studying and drawing architectural monuments. 
His drawings have been published in the leading
 American architectural journals and in some 
English journals. His style of drawing, while
 quite individual, has some of the economy of line
 and exquisite refinement of Moxime Lalanne, the
 famous French artist. Two exhibits of his drawings 
have been shown in Ann Arbor.

Professor Chamberlain will teach design and drawing.
