History award recipients presented

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Regional History Center announces the 2019 history award recipients.

The Helen Longyear Paul Award goes to John P. Case for his exemplary work in local Marquette County history and the Peter White Award goes to the Bishop Baraga Association for their renovation of the Bishop Baraga House.

Marquette County has a rich history and cultural heritage that inspires many to interpret, preserve and share it. As a history institution it is our responsibility to recognize those efforts and promote the achievements of people and organizations making history today. The Marquette Regional History Center began an awards program in 1984. The Helen Longyear Paul Award is given to recognize individuals and the Peter White Award honors foundations, companies, organizations and institutions. Both recognize exceptional effort in the enhancement, restoration, conservation or interpretation of the history of our area.

The awards will be presented at the MRHC Annual Meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the History Center. The meeting is free, open to the public and will offer refreshments, a brief business meeting, the awards ceremony and a presentation by the Women’s Welfare Club of Marquette.
