Abstract:

A series of historical materials collected by the university's librarian largely relating to Northern Michigan University and, occasionally, to Marquette.

Lydia M. Olson appears to have started the collection and the tradition was continued by subsequent Library Directors. The collection is valuable as it contains records providing insight on early campus life. Particularly strong are materials covering the areas of athletics, concerts, and cultural programs, conferences and workshops, day-to-day faculty and administrative matters, NMU history, McGoff Lecture Series, various professional organizations (including Interfaculty Council of the Michigan Education Association, and Upper Peninsula Education Association), student activities, and student orientation. There is also information regarding campus buildings, various events (including the U.S. Bicentennial and several Finnish Celebrations), faculty committees, lists of new and continuing faculty and staff, the John D. Pierce School, education and cost of living in Marquette, wars and military matters, summer session, and women. Of particular interest are a group of questionnaires completed by alumni regarding their experiences as students; transcripts of Miriam Hilton's oral history interviews with several NMU faculty and administrators; and a circa 1943, eleven chapter unpublished manuscripts, "History of Northern" written by F.R. Copper.
