From the Collection:

As part of the 40th Anniversary of The Women's Center in 2013, Jane Ryan began a series of oral history interviews of women who founded, volunteered, received services, or worked at the Center, located in Marquette, Michigan. Taken together the oral histories describe how and why women organized and established the Women's Center. Interviewees discuss the nature of early educational workshops and programs benefiting women and families in the Marquette area. Recipients of the Center's services summarize the life changing effects these services had on them. Interviews with current and former staff members provide firsthand accounts on operational procedures and the evolution of the Center over time. The following interviewees shared their experience with the Women's Center: Priscilla Burnham, Jacqueline Dalt, Rosa Diddams, June Easton, Norma Greenwood, Holly Greer, Gail Griffith, Sue Kensington, Sally May, Carolyn McDonald, Patricia Micklow, Martha Parks, Kathy Peters, Karlyn Rapport.

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.
