Interested in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula mining history?

The Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company Historical Records Digitization Project is now live.  Funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and developed by the Central Upper Peninsula and NMU Archives, The Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Mining Company Digitization project focuses on three record series from the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Mining Company collection. The three series include over 70,000 historical documents contained in lumber, land, and mining annual reports, over 235 maps dated 1893-1960, and more than 250 photographs. There is also a blog documenting the progress of the project and lesson plans utilizing the source materials to meet Michigan education standards.  The finding aid gives background information on the collection and is a great place to start for accessing the various documents.
