In 1820 Michigan's population was about 7500 people, mostly
clustered near Detroit, Mackinac Island, and Sault Ste. Marie, and
forests covered the state. By 1900 the population had grown to 2.4
million, and the vast forests had disappeared, converted to farmland
and lumber. Matt Dykstra will discuss this transition and what forces
drove this drastic change. Please register by February 15 for lunch.
