     Hang Lake Superior History on Your Wall With 2003 Calendar

Navy trainees lounge nonchalantly on ice ridges in front of their
trapped schooner, sweethearts enjoy a Lake Superior beach from
underneath an umbrella, two boys hang tight during a wild ice boat ride
on the Duluth-Superior harbor.  These are some of the thought-provoking
and poignant images found in the Historic Lake Superior and Minnesota's
North Shore 2003 wall calendar.  The 14-month, black-and-white calendar
is offered for $10 (plus tax) from the University of Minnesota Sea
Grant Program and its partners.

The images, carefully culled from archives of the Northeast Minnesota
Historical Center, the Minnesota Historical Society, and the Lake
Superior Maritime Collections at the University of Wisconsin Superior
are combined with historic facts about the North Shore and Lake
Superior, moon phases, and holidays (including some local favorites
like St. Urho's Day).

Historic Lake Superior and Minnesota's North Shore is bound to give
visitors and residents alike a remarkable glimpse of the pastŠand it's
for a good cause! Proceeds go into a special fund that is used to
produce educational and scientific materials about Lake Superior.  The
calendar is printed with soy ink on recycled paper.  Size when
unfolded:  12-1/2 x 17-1/2 inches, with plenty of room to write out
your busy schedule.

The calendar can be found at many local bookstores and gift shops in
Duluth and on the North Shore, or you can contact Minnesota Sea Grant
at (218) 726-6191, or by e-mail at seagr@umn.edu.  View sample images
and order the calendar online at

Historic Lake Superior and Minnesota's North Shore is a cooperative
project between the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program, Christie
Printing Company, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Lake Superior
Maritime Visitor Center.
