Glacier Way?

 

continued

In 1987, the Ann Arbor City Council, Ann Arbor Township, and the Washtenaw County Road Commission agreed to change the name back to "Glazier." The day of the council vote, the Ann Arbor News ran a letter to the editor from local historian Susan Wineberg, citing evidence that family members actually spelled their name Glasier.

That wasn't enough to stop the momentum to return to the original spelling--but months later, Wineberg heard from a member of the Glasier family, confirming that her spelling was correct. The U-M North Campus stands on part of the old Glasier Farm.
