Max M. Fisher was an incredible man who found success in many aspects of his life including business, fund-raising, international diplomacy and philanthropy. We worked closely with the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation to create an expansive, interactive presentation of Max Fisher’s life. The complete collection of Max Fisher’s papers, photographs, correspondence, etc. are being archived at the Reuther Library at Wayne State University. The Online Archives include a fraction of the total collection but are designed to tell a compelling story.
The website includes four original videos that each focus on one of Max Fisher’s outstanding character traits – Wisdom, Leadership, Service and Generosity. We’ve created an interactive timeline of his life with over 150 events and a searchable database with over 600 items including 107 video clips. This educational website is designed to introduce people who do not know Max Fisher to his legacy and preserve his memory for the thousands of people who were touched by his generosity and commitment.
