Each semester, the Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives offers several educational outreach programs designed to increase awareness of the Archives among students and faculty. Every two weeks the Archives will host “Chat with the Archivist” in the busy concourse of Jamrich Hall. Students and faculty can stop and visit to learn about Archives collections and activities. This coming Wednesday February 11, 2015 University Archivist Marcus Robyns will have papers from the John Voelker collection for students, faculty or community members to learn about. John Voelker was born in Ishpeming and is notoriously known for his novel Anatomy of a Murder. The John Voelker collection consists of court cases, personal documents and the actual bullets used in the Anatomy of a Murder case.
Be sure to stop by anytime between 10am-12pm in Jamrich to learn more about the John Voelker collection. Interested in learning more about the Chat with the Archivist or the Voelker collection? Contact the Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
