New Book for Finlandia University Has Been Released

4/9/2012 10:26:00 AM

by Deborah K. Frontiera

Finlandia University entered into a contract with Deborah K. Frontiera to write a history for the university in the spring of 2012. Planned release at Finn Fest in Hancock and Houghton, Michigan went smoothly. The title of this new book is: Picturing the Past, Finlandia University: 1896 to the Present.

Deborah Frontiera signed a contract to write a new history of Soumi College/Finlandia University, going back to the institution's roots in 1898 up to the present. The work is a "coffee table" type book with over 250 pages of photographs and text, many in black and white, with more recent years in color.

 "With the experience of Copper Country Chronicler: The Best of J. W. Nara, and having done so much research in Hancock at the Finnish/American Archives right 'next door' to Finlandia Universtiy, while researching Lining on Sisu, I enjoyed to delving into those archives again for this new project," Frontiera said. She spent four months living in the area, June through Sep. 2012, to complete the first draft. Karen Johnson, employee of Finlandia University, took over the project at that point. While Johnson lists herself as "editor and lead author" in the Introduction, she stated in an article in the Daily Mining Gazette on June 20, 2013, that she "wrote the book from the draft".

Picturing the Past, Finlandia University: 1896 to the Present made it's debut in soft cover at Grand Finn Fest 2013 as planned. The hard cover version will be available later in July. Those interested in purchasing a copy should contact North Wind Books, 906-487-7217 or go to: http//   The ISBN is: 978-0-9893484-0-9

Finlandia University through North Wind Books will likely be the only place to get this book. It will not be available through the author because the author's contract limits such sales.
