• Collecting COVID-19

    There is no question that the coronavirus emergency that is so deeply affecting all our lives is a significant history-making time. The Michigan History Center is collecting the stories of diverse Michiganders so that the record we preserve in 2020 will help future generations understand what it felt like to live through this time.

    We are seeking your pictures, videos and audio recordings, which you can upload here. All contributions may be preserved in the Archives of Michigan collections. In addition, this site includes an image gallery that allows others to see what people are posting, in real time. Click the "View Stories" link above to visit the photo gallery.

    Visit the Michigan History Center Collecting COVID-19 page for more information on this collecting project - including some question prompts to help spark ideas for submissions - and details on how to contribute objects and other materials.
