Comments

Michigan Tech was established in 1885 at Houghton, Michigan, in the heart of the "Copper Country" of Michigan's Upper Peninsula - only a snowball's throw from the shores of lake superior. It is a state-supported institution, but paradoxically, is nearer to the borders of four other states (Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois) and two of their capitals (Madison, St. Paul) than to the seat of Michigan government in Lansing. Houghton is farther north than Toronto. Its average annual snowfall is twice that of Juneau, Alaska, and more than the combined averages of such cold weather cities as Burlington, VT., Cheyenne and Helena.
