A Belated Thanks
Thanks to those who attended my “Brown Bag” presentation on Keweenaw County’s early copper milling history last Wednesday (April 11th). I was able to talk about a lot of topics (probably too many) and show loads of maps and photos. It was a great way for me to work through and get comments on some of the avenues of research I either need to address further or maybe put on the back burner for now.
This presentation is currently being modified— i.e.-shorted by 30 minutes and more focused— for the upcoming Society for Industrial Archeology (SIA) Conference in Cincinnati, May 31 – June 3. I was recently awarded a $500 travel grant from the SIA to attend and present on my milling related research (Cliff Mine included), and am really looking forward to the networking opportunities.
