Tracy William McGregor was born April 14, 1869 in Berlin Heights, Ohio. Under his leadership, the McGregor Institute, grew to be one of the largest of its kind in the country. In 1917, he helped organize the Detroit Community Union and Patriotic Fund, forerunners of today's United Way Community Services. The Tracy W. McGregor Collection contains correspondence, reports, journals, meeting minutes, publications and other material documenting the extended McGregor family, the founding of the McGregor Institute, his civic and philanthropic activities, especially with regard to the McGregor Fund, and his later life as a bibliophile. The collection also contains some contemporary documentation compiled from other sources by McGregor biographer, Philip P. Mason, as well as oral histories and other material collected for the Fund's McGregor biography project.
