If I hadn’t already known that graduate student Ary — who requested her last name not be published — was recovering from several years of alcohol and drug abuse, I wouldn’t have guessed it from her appearance.

A woman stands next to a fallen house in Detroit in July of 1967.

Erin McBrien remembers Detroit as quiet for most of the summer of 1967. Her father’s position as a police officer required the family live within the city’s confines.

Kevin Graffagnino is the director of the Clements Library.

It was a dismal, Michigan morning — cloudy, with raindrops that didn’t warrant the use of an umbrella but were heavy enough for me to put up my sweatshirt hood — and it was my first semester at the University of Michigan when I went to the Bentley Historical Library on North Campus for the first time. I had been forced into familiarity with the buses going to the University’s separate campus — I had an 8:30 a.m. class on North four days a week and knew how to navigate the often daunting system.
