GraphicColorThe exhibits “Tumult and Tragedy: Michigan’s 1913-14 Copper Strike” and “People, Place, and Time: Michigan’s Copper Country Through the Lens of J.W. Nara, 1874-1934,” both created by the Michigan Tech Archives, are currently on view in new locations.

Tumult and Tragedy,” which consists of 12 panels and includes photographs, excerpts from newspapers, documents, and songs from the strike era, is on view to the public at the Northern Michigan University’s Beaumier Heritage Center in Marquette. For further information please contact the Beaumier at (906) 227-3212. “People, Place, and Time,” which explores the life and work of photographer John William Nara, is available for viewing at the Dee Stadium in Houghton. The exhibit will be at the Dee until Labor Day to accompany the stadium’s other featured exhibits.

The “People, Place, and Time” exhibit was made possible by a generous donation from the Nara Foundation.

The “Tumult & Tragedy” exhibit was made possible through a $14,500 grant from the Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional funding was provided by Michigan Technological University, Cranking Graphics, and Dr. Robert and Ruth Nara.
