Biographical / Historical

The Saturday Morning Star and the Sunday Morning Star were newspapers published in Manistique, Michigan in the 1890s. There are contradictions in historical sources about the newspapers, but it seems likely that the Sunday Morning Star was published from 1890 to 1891 and that it was re-named the Saturday Morning Star in 1891. The Saturday Morning Star appears to have been published from 1891 to 1893. Some sources claim that it merged with the Manistique Tribune, while others claim that it merged with the Manistique Semi-Weekly Pioneer.

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.
