Biographical / Historical

The Teenie Weenies was a comic strip that ran from 1914 to 1970. It depicted the lives of a village of tiny people that lived in a world of normal-sized objects. The creator of the comic strip was newspaper cartoonist William Donahey (1883-1970). Donahey lived in Grand Marais, Michigan during the summers in the Pickle Barrel House, a house designed to look like the house in the comic strip. The Pickle Barrel House is now a museum operated by the Grand Marais Historical Society.

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.
