Biographical / Historical

The Escanaba Daily Mirror was a daily newspaper published in Escanaba, Michigan. The start date of the paper is unclear. The Chronicling America database claims that the paper began as the weekly Escanaba Mirror sometime in the 1880s and became the Escanaba Daily Mirror sometime in the 1890s. However, the first extant issues from 1906 are "Volume 2," suggesting that the paper began around 1905. The Escanaba Daily Mirror ceased publication on June 28, 1924, when it merged with The Escanaba Daily Press.

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.
