Repository description (CRHP): The Flint Labor History Project documents the 1936-37 sit-down strike at local auto factories.

Repository description (extant): The Genesee Historical Collections Center, a division of the University of Michigan-Flint Thompson Library, contains both published and unpublished material concerning the history of Flint and Genesee County, Michigan, as well as the archives of the University of Michigan-Flint. It has existed since 1984, primarily serving UM-Flint students.

Among the more significant manuscript collections held here are those of Flint realtor Gerald Healy, African-American activist Edgar Holt, records of the Flint Woolen Mills, Flint Junior League, Rotary Club, and other personal and organizational records. The papers of Sen. Donald Riegle and Rep. Dale Kildee are included among its political collections. The Center holds a microfilm copy of the papers of Henry H. Crapo, Flint governor, lumberman, and railroad executive, as well as papers of members of his family. Finding aids are available at the archives and online.

The Center holds a general reference collection relating to Michigan history, besides many books and pamphlets on Flint-area topics. Organizational newsletters, maps, sound recordings, and microfilm of Flint newspapers are among further holdings. Books, manuscript collections, and other items are cataloged on Mirlyn. Finding aids and databases are available on site.
