The late Mike Wallace enjoyed his ties to the University of Michigan
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Three-quarters of a century after Mike Wallace graduated from the University of Michigan, his name and his contributions live on at the Ann Arbor school.
The veteran CBS newsman died Saturday in New Canaan, Conn., at age 93.
Wallace came to Michigan from Brookline, Mass. He reported for the student-run newspaper The Michigan Daily and did radio work as well, graduating in 1939.
Wallace continued to befriend the university, lending support to the Knight-Wallace Fellowship program that gives mid-career journalists opportunities to explore subjects of interest to them.
Wallace donated the Wallace House to the program as a homelike gathering place for participants.
Wallace gave the Bentley Library his papers from the 1950s, and in 2006 he gave the school papers from his CBS career.
