Central U.P. and NMU Archives

In the late 1990s, Peter Frecchio, an announcer for WMIQ-AM radio in Iron Mountain, Michigan, contacted Russell Magnaghi. Together, they developed a weekly show on the history of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives manages on-campus office records and houses historical manuscript collections pertaining to the central Upper Peninsula. Our department is utilized by the campus and local communities as well as internationally for administrative, scholarly, and genealogical research.
