The MSU Map Library received a gift of 27 maps of Michigan and the Great Lakes dating from 1757 to 1862. Mike DeGrow built this collection over many years, with the goal of illustrating the political development of the state. Several of the rarest maps in the group illustrate the area contested in the border war with Ohio. Several others depict the changing relationship Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula had with Michigan.
