This project was inspired by The Calumet Region, a Master Bibliography published by Lance Trusty of Purdue University Calumet in 1985. Since his work is approaching 40 years old, we decided to not only update it, but make it web based so we can continually add to it. We view this work as organic, always growing and changing, community driven, and serving as an important tool for those who want to study the Calumet Region. We believe this area with its unique population, culture, geography, and location is deserving of research. This website quite simply is trying to highlight the history of this area to assist researchers. Thank you for visiting.
