On the eighth floor of the Physics and As- tronomy Building, there is an office that is the picture of delightful disarray. Books, magazines, and articles are piled high on a table, while as- sorted papers have accumulated to overflow on a nearby desk. Balanced on top of the stack of desk papers is an obsolete typewriter. A small vase holding three red roses is carefully perched on a cleared-off table corner. Behind the oaken desk sits a little grey-haired woman. About her neck hangs a delicate maize and blue necklace. That woman is Hazel M. " Doc " Losh, the legendary true blue supporter of all Michigan sports, the Michigan Homecoming Queen for life, and the much-loved and respected professor of Astronomy. Doc Losh came to the University of Michigan in 1921 as a graduate student in Astronomy. In 1927, Doc Losh was on the staff teachin g As- tronomy. Her classes were extremely popular. " My lectures were always packed, " recalls Doc Losh. " Students would be sitting on the stage and in the aisles. " I taught for 41 years, which means I ' ve had about 50,000 students, " Doc proudly states. It has been reputed that many " M " athletes enrolled in Doc ' s Astronomy classes because of her sports-minded grading system A for athletes, B for boys, and C for coeds. Doc Losh, " I ' ve got this awful football problem ... " smiles, adds, " . . .and D for dummies that be- lieved it. " " But it ' s kind of cute, I guess. Of course there ' s nothing to it. Just because they were an athlete, they didn ' t get an A by any means. There ' s one former student athlete who is now in Chicago that got a D. And he never lets me forget it. " Doc Losh explains, " I had loads of people in my classes who weren ' t athletes. Athletes were just a small proportion. " But Doc has had her share of now famous people who were once mere undergrad astronomy students. Her eyes sparkle as she proudly lists their names Bob Ufer, Bud Guest, Tom Harmon, Ron Kramer and others. Doc Losh still keeps up her Michigan en- thusiasm. She goes to every home football, bas- ketball, and hockey game. " I don ' t care as much for basketball. But I ' ve got this awful football problem, " Doc states simply. But it ' s not such an awful problem, because Doc Losh seems to be coping and enjoying every minute of it. Why Michigan sports, especially football, just wouldn ' t be the same without its number one fan Doc Losh faithfully cheer- ing in the stands. Deborah Lacusta Photography by Betsy A. Masinick 36
