Michigan Tech and the Copper Country



Here you will find my photo albums from the time I was a "toot" at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan from Fall of 1967 until I graduated and moved to Sault Ste Marie, Ontario in December of 1972. Photos are organized by subject such as Winter Carnival 1968, Campus Photos, Dorm Fun, Copper Country scenery, railroads, etc.

What brought this all on was a letter from the Alumni Association saying that it was my class's 40th (!!) anniversary, and then I remembered that I had a lot of slides stashed away that should be scanned and posted for anyone to enjoy and to bring back old memories.

A few years ago I did have some old MTU photos posted, but Cox Cable changed something on their servers that made Front Page built websites not compatible with them, and I hadn't checked those pages for a long time and didn't realize that they were no longer on-line. This website was built with MS Expressions, which is an updated version of Front Page.


Any comments and caption corrections are certainly welcome - I certainly don't pretend to remember all of the details as to the places and names. After all, that was 40+ years ago! I can be reached here: ted-ellis {at} cox {dot} net - thanks.

Now... Prints and/or high resolution .tiff files of these photos are available - email me for details.
