Wayne State University’s Reuther Library wins State History Award

The Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor and Urban Affairs was one of 15 recipients of a 2017 State History Award from the Historical Society of Michigan.

The Reuther Library received the award in the category of restoration/preservation for its Michigan Labor History Mural restoration. The library’s two-year project preserved, restored and exhibited a 9-by-20-foot oil painting in its public reading room. The project repaired 75 years of stains and damage, returning the painting to its original beauty.

The untitled mural has had a transient history. In 1954, the mural was painstakingly moved from 2730 Maybury Grand in Detroit to 6495 W. Warren after its former home was razed to make way for a freeway project. The mural stayed in place until 2002, when it was moved to UAW Local 174’s new headquarters in Romulus, Michigan. In 2015, the mural was donated to Wayne State University with the hope that it would be preserved and made available to the public for generations to come.

The Historical Society of Michigan presents the State History Awards every year to individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the appreciation, collection, preservation and/or promotion of state and local history. The awards are the highest recognition presented by the Historical Society of Michigan, the state’s official historical society and oldest cultural organization.

The Reuther Library will accept its award at the Michigan State History Conference in Holland, Michigan, from Sept. 22-24.
