The Labadie Collection

Did you know that the University of Michigan is home to the oldest collection dedicated to documenting social protest and radical political movements? The Labadie Collection, named for native Michigander and activist Joseph Antoine Labadie, is now physically housed on the seventh floor of the Hatcher Library. In addition, many of the collection's images are available online to UM students, faculty and staff.
