History Hounds: The Great Women of Mackinac at ACL

ALPENA — Alpena County George N. Fletcher Public Library will host History Hounds: Trailblazers and Icons: The Great Women of Mackinac, 1800-1950, to be held at noon on Tuesday, Dec. 19.

The presentation will be held at the library, 211 N. 1st Ave., and on Facebook.

The great women of Mackinac were trailblazers who established the community on Mackinac Island. They were leaders in the island’s fur trade, healthcare, literature, horse culture, and education, and their lives ran the gamut from scandal to tragedy. The personal stories of those women–including Madeline Laframboise, Agatha Biddle, Margaret Fuller, and Daisy Blodgett–reveal inventiveness and perseverance in a time when women had few rights.

History Hounds is a bi-weekly lecture series presented by the Historical Society of Michigan.
