Copper Country History is a site to share and explore the history of Upper Michigan’s Copper Country. This year the site is dedicated to my thesis project on the social memory of the 1913-14 Michigan Copper Miners’ Strike, but I enjoy researching all aspects of regional history.
If you wish to know a bit about me, beyond this project, I am a Yooper, originally from Tamarack City, with a penchant for big trees, big lakes, history, and record collections. I enjoy media of all types and styles, Bosch breweriana, bonfires, kayaking, singing songs about my dogs, record fairs, traditional Finnish saunas, and making art. I have a diverse background in library work, having served as a librarian for DC Public Library, a gifts coordinator for George Mason University Libraries, and as an archives assistant at Western Illinois University. I currently work as a cataloger and library assistant in the Maki Library at Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan.
