Michigan Archaeological Society

The Michigan Archaeological Society is concerned with the study of aboriginal sites and artifacts in Michigan and is comprised mainly of amateur and avocational archaeologists.

The records include constitutions and bylaws, minutes, reports, correspondence, newsletters, and scattered photographs detailing the administration and operation of the organization. The records also document major projects, such as an effort to preserve aboriginal petroglyphs found in Sanilac County, and the activities of local chapters, particularly in the Clinton, Saginaw, and Grand Rapids areas.? Additional information about the Society can be found in the papers of members such as Ira W. Butterfield, Fred Dustin, George R. Fox, and Amos R. Green.
