Brian Leigh Dunnigan: Early Detroit in Maps

November 17 • 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. on WAAM • Ann Arbor

Join Ed as he welcomes back Brian Leigh Dunnigan, Associate Director and Curator of Maps, the William L. Clements Library of the University of Michigan. Brian will highlight the Clements’ superlative collection of maps detailing the growth of Detroit during the 1700s. Of special note will be a stunning, previously unknown, hand-colored map of the City and its fort drawn by a British officer in 1790 (when Detroit was still in British hands). A recent acquisition, the map helps fill in “another piece of the [American historical] puzzle.”
