"Frigid Fairy Tales" and Keweenaw air travel combine in this #MapYourHistory story.
In 1973, Michigan Tech had a unique arrangement with a university in Texas. The Daily Mining Gazette covered the story and captioned the photo (left) as follows:
“A shipment of 500 pounds of official Copper Country snow is sent [via the Houghton County Memorial Airport] to the students of Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos as part of the Michigan Tech Winter Carnival. The southerners look forward to its arrival each year for an all-out snowball fight in the Texas sun.”
Soon, Michigan Tech students past and present will be able to share their air travel memories though the #KeweenawTimeTraveler. Not a Tech student or alum? No problem! Anyone can join in and #MapYourHistory.
