Troubled Waters: the U's internal debate

Alex is still over at the U of M poring over the 2,500 docs released today. He hasn’t uncovered evidence of some massive conspiracy over the Troubled Waters cancellation, but he sent over one internal email that illustrates the turmoil among U staffers as the decision unfolded. The exchange is between Allen Levine, dean of the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Sciences, and Susan Weller, director of the Bell Museum. “Karen” is Karen Himle, vice president of university relations.

(He sent it via two phone photos that I merged below, but the edited image contains the entire exchange.)Troubled Waters memo
