The Michigan Difference

Dear Aunt Ruth
U-M staff member Ruth B. Buchanan sent thousands of letters, greeting cards, and copies of The Michigan Daily to students, faculty, staff and alumni serving in World War II. She requested they call her “Aunt Ruth,” and the response of soldiers and sailors was dramatic, and makes for one of the country’s richest collections of wartime correspondence.
Throughout the spring, Michigan Difference will regularly highlight stories from the U-M Heritage Project website.
