Biographical / Historical

Kaye House has been the name of the residence of the President of Northern since 1954. From 1954 to 1980, the house was located at 537 West Kaye Street. In 1980, a new "Kaye House" was built with university money at 1440 Center Street at the request of President John X. Jamrich. This scrapbook, created by Jamrich's wife June, depicts both the first and the second Kaye Houses. It documents the initial process of decorating the second house and contains materials on many events held at the second home for university guests and faculty.

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.
