Michigan history magazine coloring pages

For the next sixty years, Michigan History served as a traditionally academic quarterly publication, continuing to offer scholarly essays, book reviews, and news items. In 1965, the Society ceased its involvement with the publication of the magazine, and in 1972, the newly created Division of Michigan History, a division of the Michigan Department of State, took over the magazine’s publication. This was done in conjunction with the Commission, which served as an advisory board to the Division. Under the State Department, the journal converted to a popular magazine format and became a bimonthly publication beginning in 1978. The Division of Michigan History was renamed the Michigan Historical Center in 1995 and transferred from the Department of State to the newly created Department of History, Arts, and Libraries in October 2001.
