Biographical / Historical

The Greater Ishpeming Pioneer Kiwanis was organized in 1977 as a less costly alternative to the Noon Kiwanis meeting. It was designed primarily for senior citizens and retirees. It meets in the afternoon and currently meets at Trinity Lutheran Church in Ishpeming, Michigan. The Pioneer Kiwanis logs many service hours each year and one of its ongoing service projects is building handicapped access ramps in the west end of Marquette County.

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.
