Historical - Mapping the Grand Traverse Indian Country
At age 93, Helen Hornbeck Tanner created this historical cover map of the 1850s which traces the early American Indian and white settlement in the Grand Traverse region. She is a prominent historian of Great Lakes Indians, respected authority on Native Rights, and was senior research fellow at the Newberry Library in Chicago for thirty years.
Tanner was project director and editor of the Atlas of Great Lakes of Indian History published in 1987 by University of Oklahoma Press. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the atlas is considered “the only accurate mapping of Native American Tribes” for this area. Mapping the Grand Traverse Indian Country: The Contributions of Peter Dougherty was originally published as a chapter in Mapping in Michigan and the Great Lakes Region edited by David Macleod and published by Michigan State University Press in 2007.
Helen was a Beulah MI summer resident (1916-2011).
