Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula: A Pictorial History
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
 

Today, the Keweenaw Peninsula is best known for snow, cold weather, and Michigan Technological University. However, between the 1840s and 1995, this area was a major producer of the world's copper supply. It was also home to Fort Wilkins, built in the 1840s to protect the copper industry and keep peace between the copper miners and the Objibwa and Chippawa tribes. The Keweenaw has a rich, varied, and unrecognized history, and has played an important part in the broader history of the State of Michigan. Using vintage postcards and personal photographs, Charles Gehrke’s presentation will explore the history of the Keweenaw Peninsula’s people and their major mining industry.

Charles Gehrke is a native Michigander. He is a retired physician, interested in collecting and using vintage postcards to illustrate historical presentations. Following his retirement, he returned to school to obtain a Masters Degree in American History from Eastern Michigan University.
