In 2010 MSU Libraries purchased a second Sanborn module which contains detailed historic maps of 12 major metropolitan areas in the United States (see list below).

Dates of maps vary, but generally for each location you will see 6 to 8 editions between 1880-1960. An MSU NetID is required for access.

Marty Quiroz, passed away earlier this morning. I did not know him well, just having met him a month ago, but over the years I heard many wonderful things about him. Friday evening June 25, 2010 at the close of the Imagenes de la Revolución Exhibit in Detroit,I shared a few moments with him again. He was with two of his close friends in Mexicantown at a restaurant across the street and they called me to have a shot of tequila with them...in the parking lot...out of the trunk of his car...My mom warned me about stuff like that, but I did it anyway.
