Biographical / Historical

The Nonesuch News was a weekly newsletter/newspaper published in White Pine, Ontonagon County, Michigan from at least 1964 to 1978. A complete history of the paper is unknown, but publishers and editors include R.W. Powell, G.B. Powell, L. Chabot, and R. Tonkin. The name might refer to the town of Nonesuch, an abandoned mine/town that was once very close to White Pine. However, Nonesuch had been out of existence for decades by the time that the Nonesuch News was being published.

This collection guide includes collections from member organizations of UPLINK (the Upper Peninsula Digital Network) as well as the Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives. UPLINK collections document the history of the Upper Peninsula broadly, while the Central UP & NMU Archives focuses on such topics as Northern Michigan University history, the local iron mining industry, and the politics, economics, religion, environment, and culture of the Central Upper Peninsula region.

These finding aids will give you an overview of the contents and context of each collection. Finding aids only exist for collections that each organization has shared with UPLINK or (in the case of the NMU Archives) for processed collections. For a more comprehensive list of collections that might help with your research, please contact the relevant heritage organization(s) directly.
