Cook County Higher Education July Guest Lecture:
Most of Everything You Think about Early Grand Marais is Well -- Wrong: The American Fur Company in the 1820s
By Tim Cochrane Park Manager at Grand Portage National Monument
July 22nd, 2014
Cook County Higher Education
Tim Cochrane is the park manager at Grand Portage National Monument. He is also a researcher and writer who particular enjoys re-discovering unknown or forgotten historical topics on the North Shore and Isle Royale.
Tim is currently searching for hard to find information on the American Fur Company's trading operation at Grand Marais in the 1820s and their attempts at trade with Ojibwe, such as with the leader or ogimaa L'Espagnol. He enjoys the frequent surprises that inevitably happens when finding and synthesizing a record from the often fragile sources -- most often journals and letters.
Tim Cochrane’s Book: Minong: The Good Place-Ojibwe and Isle Royale
