The Historical Society of Michigan announces that its 68th annual Upper
Peninsula History Conference will be held in Iron River and Caspian, Mich.,

hosted by the Iron County Historical Society & Museum and West Iron County
Middle and High School.

In addition, the annual Upper Peninsula History Awards are presented at this
conference: the Charles Follo Award for individuals and the Superior Award
for historical organizations based in the Upper Peninsula.

"This year, the conference offers expanded content on Friday," said
Historical Society of Michigan Executive Director Larry Wagenaar, "which
gives attendees the opportunity to immerse themselves in an array of
historical topics, tours, workshops and entertainment."

The three-day conference also includes three keynotes: "In the Trenches:
Soldiers' Stories of WWI," "Dollar-a-Day Boys: The Civilian Conservation
Corps in Michigan," and "Rum Rebellion: Prohibition Hits the U.P."; 12
breakout sessions and four workshops; five tours; a wild rice camp; a
picnic; and a banquet, where the U.P. History Awards will be presented;
exhibitor tables; and networking opportunities. 

Regular registration for the Upper Peninsula History Conference closes June
9. Late registration closes June 19. After that date, registrations will be
available only at the door, but meal tickets will not be available.
