Evening at the Archives

Are you a fan of wildlife, the Upper Peninsula, or just photography in general? Well don't we have a gift for you. This spring, we'll be hosting a new Evening at the Archives discussing George Shiras III and his famous nocturnal photography in the U.P. The event will be hosted by Jim McCommons, the author of a biography called Camera Hunter, which recounts the life and craft of George Shiras III. This event will be free to the public and refreshments will be provided. Join us on Thursday, March 26 from 7pm to 9pm in room 126 of Harden Hall. If you have any questions, you can contact the NMU Archives through our email at archives@nmu.edu or call 906-227-1225.

We hope to see you soon!
