U.P. History Conference

It’s a day at NMU to learn more about many of the things that make the history of the Upper Peninsula unique.

Mead Auditorium, within the Glenn Seaborg Center, is hosting an 8th annual history conference.

It’s called the Sonderegger Symposium after the Marquette family whose financial support got it moving.

The topics can sometimes take an unusual shape, like the World War 1 flu pandemic or the spread in the last 20 years of computer and Internet use in the area.

After a keynote address tonight at Reynolds Recital Hall, the symposium events continue there again tomorrow from 3 to 5.
