The Michigan Technological University Archives and Copper Country Historical Collections houses a wide variety of print, graphic and manuscript resources. Subject coverage includes University and campus life, towns and cities in the Keweenaw, and the companies, social organizations, events and personalities of the Copper Country and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
The department’s holdings include collections from the Quincy Mining Company and the Calumet & Hecla Mining Company, an extensive collection of regional newspapers on microfilm, public records from six counties in the Western Upper Peninsula and the area’s largest collection of local history books and magazine titles.
The MTU Archives operates on a walk-in basis for researchers during our normal hours of operation. Appointments may be scheduled with individual staff members for specialized types of research support.
