The Making of Modern Michigan

A number of digital collections have been started at the country's universities in order to both provide access to otherwise little-seen materials and to also train staff how to create such increasingly valuable online collections. Under the direction of staff members at Michigan State University, The Making of Modern Michigan brings together important documents dealing with Michigan history. On the project website, visitors can now view materials from 36 libraries via a search engine or they may also browse the materials by contributing institution. Some of the material here is quite splendid, including the Ward Morgan Photography Collection from Western Michigan University. This particular collection includes archival photographs of a number of urban areas throughout the twentieth century. Here visitors will find street scenes of Kalamazoo in the 1920s, census workers,and industrial accidents.
