Accession Number: 
4.5 linear feet (9 MB)

During the academic year 1967-1968 Wayne State University celebrated the hundredth anniversary of its founding. As part of the commemoration, the University sponsored a series of symposia of national significance under the theme, "The University and Urban Society."
Broadly, the Symposia theme dealt with the urban university and its impact on, and responsibilities to, its urban community. More specifically, the focus of the Symposia was an examination of the problems and issues associated with an increasingly urban society.

The collection consists primarily of the records of Edward Lurie, Wayne State University professor of history, who served as director of the Centennial Symposia, and his assistant, Philip Borden.
