NMU has new archives exhibit

MARQUETTE — With great fiction there must be great truth and NMU’s library will be presenting more truth on November 9th as they showcase a new archives exhibit as well as historical print.

In a new online exhibit, created with the help of two NMU students, the public will have access to 44 interviews from 2004 about Upper Peninsula history.

There will also be a presentation on the first general history of the Upper Peninsula written by a professional historian, with an opportunity for people to buy the book.

“People who are native ‘yoopers’ and newcomers are going to learn some fascinating details about the Upper Peninsula that they never thought or imagined was possible, but they are also going to get access to digital technology through the introduction of our new online exhibit of forty-four interviews that were done with Russ in 2004 by a local radio station,” said Marcus Robyns, University Archivist and professor.

The event will take place in the NMU library on November ninth, from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M., with refreshments provided.
