OSU vs Michigan


Table of Contents

OSU and Michigan libraries have combined to create a website which looks at the history of their football encounters:

The idea to create a web site about the history of the OSU/UM rivalry began with a suggestion by Fred G. Ruffner, Jr. Ruffner, a 1950 Ohio State graduate who lives in Michigan and is the founder of Gale Publishing, asked whether the libraries of the two universities could cooperate to create something that would coincide with the Big Game. In response, two different projects were created. This site, which explores the football rivalry, was developed using the collections in the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan and the Ohio State University Archives. The staff in both archives worked to combine our resources to create an exhibit that recognizes the excellence of both the football teams and the materials in the archives. [About this Site]
