Michigan History Magazine
Since its first issue hit newsstands in 1917, Michigan History magazine's readership has turned to the periodical's six annual issues for an illuminating peek into the state's past. Today, 23,500 subscribers thumb through the bimonthly’s 64 eye-catching pages, perusing long features, colorful illustrations, and coverage of history-based books and events that trace Michiganders’ impact on their communities, country, and fellow global citizens. Recent issues have profiled ceramic artist Mary Chase Perry Stratton and detailed the National Housewives' League's support of African-American businesses during the Jim Crow era. Now run by the Historical Society of Michigan, the magazine also preserves its own past by curating issues from its first six years on Google Books, rather than burying them in time capsules throughout the state.
