Beaumier Center Lecture Series: “The Upper Peninsula of Wisconsin?”

What if the U.P. was part of Wisconsin? It actually almost was a reality back in the early 19th century, as the Michigan Territory was moving towards Statehood and the Wisconsin Territory was being created. Dr. Russell Magnaghi will delve deeply in

Dr. Magnaghi joined the faculty of the Department of History at Northern Michigan University in 1969. In 1974 he began to focus on regional history and in the early 1980s began to study the Italians in the Upper Peninsula. He was appointed the University Historian (1994) and Director of the Center for Upper Peninsula Studies (1996 and 2006). He also served as the head of the Departments of History and Philosophy. He retired from NMU in 2014 after 45 years of service.
